Diagnostic on the supply and demand of evaluators in Uganda, Benin and South Africa Synthesis Report
3 Country Diagnostic
During 2017 and early 2018, Twende Mbele commissioned separate diagnostic studies on the supply and demand of evaluators in Uganda, Benin and South Africa. While the studies were separate, they had similar terms of reference. The purpose of the diagnostic studies was to provide a demand-and-supply profile of evaluators in these three countries. And the aim on the other hand, was to ascertain whether supply is, and will be in the future, sufficient to meet demand, and what should be done to grow local supply. In all three countries, one of the main barriers to entry was found to be weaknesses with government capacity to formulate, procure and manage evaluations. Nevertheless, in all three countries the diagnostic was able to produce a qualitative assessment of the ability of supply to meet demand, both currently and in the future.
