Project description:

The goal of the two-year project was the development of a certified methodology for evaluation of crosscutting themes in the international development cooperation, namely good governance, human rights, gender equality & women/girl empowerment and environmental sustainability. The project reacted to highly diverse approaches applied to the evaluation of the crosscutting themes up to that point and aimed to unify and standardize them. A secondary objective was to emphasize the importance of these issues and provide tools and leads to reflect them in the whole development project cycle. The final methodology provides a thorough guidelines on how to proceed with the evaluation of these complex themes, as well as a comprehensive menu of more than 500 output and outcome indicators mapping distinct dimensions of each crosscutting themes in both qualitative and quantitative aspects.

Workshop

The workshop presented the process of evaluating cross-cutting themes in development cooperation using the newly developed Methodology for evaluation of cross-cutting themes. Workshop participants were presented with the definition of the themes, their operationalization and possible ways of evaluation in the development context. The second part of the workshop was dedicated to the practical application of the methodology, participants were provided with the opportunity to use the methodology on a specific case study.

      


 

Poster

The poster graphically represents basic facts about the Methodology, its purpose, each of the cross-cutting themes, the basic components of the Methodology, etc.  It also contains specific examples of working with the scoring sheet and shows a sample view of the standardized output of the evaluation.

 

As a supporting documents were prepared two working papers and summary report from a pilot study.

Project description:

The purpose of the study was to gain knowledge about the operating models of selected European development agencies with regard to the management of bilateral development cooperation (BDC) in the field in priority partner countries. The study included eight donor countries (Austria, Denmark, Finland, Ireland, Luxembourg, the Netherlands, Norway and Sweden), which were studied and compared among themselves in terms of their organizational structure responsible for the management of BDC, relationship between the political and development agendas, or the Ministry of Foreign Affairs (MFA) and the development agency in the field, level of decentralization of authority to embassies or development agencies’ country offices, modalities of cooperation and types of implementation partners. The insights gained from the study were used to by the Ministry and the Czech Development Agency (CzDA) to inform the planned setup of CzDA offices in priority partner countries, as well as to improve some other aspects of the Czech BDC and inform the new Strategy of International Development Cooperation of the Czech Republic for the period of 2018-2030.
