The evaluation is intended to provide insight into the effects of the TfP programme’s contribution to the training and deployment of peace operations personnel and to provide information on the programme’s progress towards its objective to build sustainable African capacity in peacekeeping and peacebuilding operations, including the role of research and policy development in this work. The evaluation will cover the time period 2011-2015. It will take into account the TfP programme’s evolving context with multiple actors and interests at the national, regional and global level. The evaluation will assess both process aspects and the effects of the TfP programme. In particular, tracer studies will be carried out to investigate the quality, relevance and effect of TfP’s training activities on the performance of trainees in peace operations.

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.

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 (2007-2009), have mainly focused on institutional issues and processes. There is little knowledge of and documentation on what happens at the field level. The focus of this evaluation will be on results.
