Norway’s aid to education has doubled over the past decade and the significant increase of the support is being channelled through multilateral entities. UNICEF and the Global Partnership for Education (GPE) receive the bulk of the Norwegian multilateral funds for basic education. Norad’s evaluation department will commission an evaluation of Norwegian support to basic education through UNICEF and GPE with the purpose of generating evaluation evidence on the relevance, efficiency and effectiveness of Norwegian aid to basic education through the multilateral channel during the past decade (2002-2011), in order to inform policy and programming decisions in this area. The countries selected for case studies are Ethiopia, Madagascar, Nepal, Pakistan and Zambia. The evaluation will be carried out in three phases, where the first two phases will be covered in the current tender, and the third phase, the impact evaluation, will be initiated only subject to approval by Norad of a proposal submitted at the end of the second phase.
Time schedule: To be initiated in 2013
