EVALUATION OVERVIEW

 

The GRAISEA 2 Programme (1 Aug 2018 – 31 July 2021) is a joint initiative led by Oxfam GB, Oxfam Novib, Oxfam US and Oxfam Sweden, with a total budget of USD 9.7 million. The programme operates at regional level and in four countries in the Southeast Asia (Cambodia, Indonesia, Vietnam and Philippines) and Pakistan.

Drawing on progress and lessons from the first phase, GRAISEA 2 aims to transform opportunities for marginalised women and men in the agriculture sector in Asia by acting as a catalyst for the emergence of inclusive value chains and responsible business practices that respect human rights and drive women’s economic empowerment and climate resilience.

With a potential extension of the programme for two years until 31 July 2023, the GRAISEA Programme Management Unit (PMU), with country teams, regional partners and Oxfam advisors are planning an external midterm evaluation, which will include four country-level evaluations in Cambodia, Indonesia, Vietnam and Pakistan and a regional-level evaluation.

 

The purposes

 

  1. To strengthen, validate and analyse evidence collected in the Midline Outcome Report produced by Oxfam and partners for Result 2 and Result 3;
  2. To review results achieved so far and how the programme contributed to changes at national and regional levels;
  3. To facilitate learning for better programming and make recommendations for the next phase of the programme.

The results achieved among market actors (Result 2) and government policies at national and regional levels (Result 3) will be the focus of the evaluation (as framed in yellow in below Figure 1: GRAISEA 2 Result Framework). The evaluation will also look at whether and how the changes in market actors (Result 2) has brought about changes among smallholder farmers (Result 1).

The midterm evaluation will be split into two parts –
