Final Performance Evaluation: USAID| Philippines Strengthening the Capacity of Civil Society Organizations in the Philippines Project (CSO) Activity
|Description of Project||
The CSO Project was designed in response to USAID Forward’s Implementation and Procurement Reform (IPR) - Objective No. 2 which aims “to strengthen local civil society and private sector capacity to improve aid effectiveness and sustainability, by working closely with implementing partners on capacity development and local grant and contract allocations”. Under the IPR, USAID has committed to build more local capacity in civil society to enable it to work with a broader range of development partners. In the Philippines’ context, USAID/Philippines, being the pilot mission for Objective 2, used its two decades of working with local civil society organizations (CSOs) in diverse development themes (i.e., delivery of basic services, participation in policy making processes, and allocation and management of grant funds for other CSOs) to design and implement the CSO Project, with capacity development in core organizational management competencies as the primary motivation.
The Final Performance Evaluation was set to determine the extent and process by which the Project achieved the project targets and how each of the components of the Project contributed to the achievement of such targets.
The Final Performance Evaluation achieved its accountability- and learning-related purposes utilizing qualitative and, as practicable, quantitative methods over a ten-week period from February 11 to June 20, 2015. The team:
