Norwegian Evaluations

Joint evaluation of support to capacity development

Baseline study of Norwegian aid to Myanmar

Myanmar and Norway are entering into long-term development cooperation, after years of Norwegian engagement in the peace process and support to humanitarian efforts. The main focus is on natural resource management within energy, environment and climate change, and institutional cooperation is a central component of these areas. To ensure quality evaluations of the assistance to a country that has only recently opened up to donors, a collection and analysis of baseline data in selected areas will be commissioned.

Joint Evaluation of Norwegian Support through the Multilaterals to Basic Education

Norway’s support to education has doubled during the last decade, and a substantial part has been channeled through multilateral actors. The purpose of the evaluation is therefore to generate evidence on the relevance, efficiency and effectiveness of Norwegian aid to basic education through the multilateral channel during the past decade (2003-2012). As main recipients of support to basic education, UNICEF and the Global Partnership for Education (GPE) will be the object of this evaluation. The countries selected for case studies are Ethiopia, Madagascar, Nepal, Pakistan and Zambia.
Time schedule: To be initiated spring 2014

Results concerning equality and women’s rights

Previous evaluations on gender equality and women’s rights in development, including the mid-term review of the Norwegian Action Plan for Women’s Rights and Gender Equality in Development Cooperation (2007-2013), have mainly focused on institutional issues and processes. There is little knowledge of and documentation on what happens with the primary target groups in the recipient countries. The focus of this evaluation will be on results.
