Final Evaluation of CaLP Activities in the MENA Region

Final Evaluation of CaLP Activities in the MENA Region

Cash Learning Partnership (CaLP), MENA Region

 

CaLP has been operating its Middle East and North Africa Office in Amman, Jordan since 2017. In 2018, CaLP received funding from the German Federal Foreign Office (GFFO) to support further expansion of regional presence that would facilitate more intensive engagement on capacity building, research and knowledge management, coordination support, and policy and advocacy objectives. Meraki Labs was commissioned to complete a final evaluation of the CaLP's overall contribution to building an enabling environment for CVA programming in the region and more broadly. The evaluation assessed past project objectives, not only in light of the MENA context and project aims, but also rapid shifts in context. In order to best serve CaLP's agenda, the evaluation was focused on assessing approach as compared to the new global strategic plan for the 2020-2025 period.

Danish Demining Group, South Sudan

 

 In order to implement conflict-sensitive peacebuilding and resilience programming in Northeast South Sudan, the Danish Demining Group (DDG) needed to develop an evidence base on current issues and dynamics driving displacement along the South Sudan-Ethiopian borderlands. This project included conducting primary qualitative research in Pibor County  to conduct a contextual analysis of communities, conducting a root causes analysis, evaluating cross-border policies and practices affecting resilience and economic wellbeing of communities, and mapping existing community-based resilience factors and peacebuilding processes and initiatives. Following the research, Meraki Labs supported DDG in developing a project concept and accompanying theory of change.
