DFATD Evaluation In South Sudan

Tana has won the assignment, “Evaluation Of DFATD’s Development And Stabilization And Reconstruction Taskforce (START) Programming In South Sudan”.

START implemented over 35 stabilization projects in Sudan and South Sudan from FY2009/10 to 2013/14. These interventions totaled more than $47 million in disbursements and were concentrated in the areas of: mine action, peacebuilding, policy and security forces, mediation and peace processes, as well as justice.

The overall objective of the evaluation is to satisfy the accountability and reporting requirements of the Canadian Government and provide sufficient data to inform the development of South Sudan’s first formal Country Development Strategy 2017 – 2021.

The focus of this evaluation, covering the five year period from 2009/10 to 2013/14, will be on the performance and relevance of the bilateral delivery channel and START programming, with attention to coherence and coordination between bilateral, multilateral, and partnership programming.

The specific objectives of this evaluation are to:

– Assess the relevance and performance (i.e. effectiveness, efficiency and sustainability, including cross-cutting issues) of DFATD Development (ex-CIDA) and START programming undertaken in South Sudan (retrospective), focusing in particular on food security and governance.
– To provide DFATD with relevant fragile state-specific information for future programming, including lessons learned, best practices and programming options, where relevant.
