Mid-Term Evaluation Supporting civil society in socio-economic development at local level

The main objectives of this evaluation are to provide the relevant services of the European Union and the interested stakeholders with:

·       An overall independent assessment of the past performance of the "Supporting civil society in socio-economic development at local level", paying particular attention to its intermediate results measured against its objectives;

·       Key lessons and recommendations in order to improve current (if relevant) and future Actions.

In particular, this mid-term evaluation aimed at providing decision-makers in the Government of Egypt and the European Union (EU) with an overall independent assessment presenting sufficient information to make an informed judgement about the performance of the programme (its efficiency, effectiveness and the likelihood for the programme to achieve its stated objectives) and to take decisions about any required adjustments for the last two years of implementation. It helped also to identify key lessons. The mid-term evaluation mission and the subsequent recommendations of the assignment contributed to the improvement of the programme.

According to the terms of reference the following activities were implemented:

·       Implementation of an initial document/data collection and definition of methods of analysis;

·       Reconstruction of Intervention Logic and description of Theory of Change, incl. objectives, specific features and target beneficiaries;

·       Implementation of an in-depth document analysis;

·       Identification of information gaps and of hypotheses to be tested in the field phase;

·       Data collection and analysis;

·       Formulation of the overall assessment, conclusions and recommendations
