External Programme Evaluation of the Drylands Development Programme

Key Staff:

Kirsty Wilson

LTS is conducting a review of the Drylands Development Programme (DryDev), a six-year initiative funded by the Ministry of Foreign Affairs (MoFA) of the Netherlands. The review is assessing the;

  • relevance of the programme’s institutional arrangements and programmatic design and approaches;
  • efficiency with which the programme’s resources are being translated into quality and appropriate support;
  • programme’s likely effectiveness in achieving its expected outcomes and impacts for different categories of smallholder farmers; and
  • likelihood that any outcomes and impacts that will be achieved through the programme will be sustained following its closure.

The review will also make strategic and actionable recommendations in each of the four areas to enhance the existing programme as its implementation is being finalized and close out processes pursued; and inform a potential second phase of the programme and/or similar integrated programmes of this nature in the African drylands.
