Project Evaluation Sample:
External Evaluation of UNESCO Education Projects funded by the Education Above All (EAA) Foundation – UNESCO
In 2016, CLIC conducted an evaluation of four projects taken singly under the framework agreement between the Iraqi Government, Qatar and UNESCO. Also, this evaluation evaluated UNESCO’s work in the implementation of the four projects by the education unit at country and HQ level. The focus was on activities carried out and results achieved during the period from 2010 to 2016 and, to the extent possible, the completed activities and achievements during the period where funds were temporarily stopped between 2014 and June 2015. The evaluation was structured in four parts in line with the defined purpose and described in the methodology designed by the Evaluation Team in coordination with UNESCO’s Framework for Evaluations. The evaluation framework focused on the relevance, effectiveness, efficiency, visibility, relevance, sustainability and impact of the projects.
Evaluation of Global Affairs Canada Support to the Ukrainian Electoral System
Global Affairs Canada’s Ukraine Development Program requested an evaluation of 4 projects designed to support the strengthening of Ukraine’s electoral system to determine the effectiveness of the support interventions and to inform future decisions of the Department as it seeks to continue to assist Ukraine to strengthen its democratic transition. This evaluation used the logic models (LM), Performance Measurement Frameworks (PMF) and Risk Registers and programmatic reports of the 4 projects as the basis to evaluate the 4 development interventions. The evaluation provided recommendations for changes to be made to the projects during implementation.
The evaluation exercise assessed and analysed Global Affairs Canada’s overall approach to support the strengthening of Ukraine’s electoral cycle to determine if the four (4) projects supported have contributed to the outcomes as expected by the Department.
External Evaluation of the South Sudan Trust Fund (SSTF) for Capacity Building on Macroeconomic Policies and Statistics
Canadian Leaders in International Consulting (CLIC) was contracted by IMF to conduct a mid-term evaluation of the SSTF, three years into the SSTF’s five-year cycle. The scope of the evaluation focused primarily on the effectiveness and continued relevance of the SSTF, with the aim of improving operations through the end of the current cycle. In addition, the evaluation aimed to assess the extent to which the Trust Fund was on track to deliver planned outcomes, as well as to identify lessons learned and recommendations for refining and improving operations, as well as for a potential future cycle. The evaluation also examined the extent to which outside factors (e.g. security) impeded the work on the SSTF, and whether these factors should be considered for future programming and operation.
The CLIC team of consultants conducted a thorough desk review of relevant literature and documents, gathered data through key informant interviews with IMF representatives in in Washington as well as staff and stakeholders in South Sudan, analyzed the findings, and prepared the draft and final reports.
