Aimed at strengthening democratic institutions and governance in Tanzania, Institutions for Inclusive Development (I4ID) sought to facilitate economic growth and inclusive development that benefits the marginalised sections.
We worked in a consortium to deliver the design, mid-term review and final evaluation of the programme. I4ID’s fluid and inherent political character presented an opportunity for the evaluation to adopt an innovative approach – exploring the ‘how’ and ‘why’ of adaptive programming, rather than a traditional performance-based evaluation. The evaluation maintained a dual focus on programme-specific, as well as more generalised learning and uptake for the emerging field of adaptive programming globally. It also provided an opportunity to better understand how political transformation works in an environment where pathways to change are uncertain.
- Provide strategic direction adjustments for the programme
- Provide learning on flexible and adaptive programming
