12/09/2015 - 29/09/2015

Target country

Mandator

UNDP has asked for ISSAT’s support in evaluating its Community Policing Programme in DRC. The Programme’s Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) was signed in 2013 and it will reach the end of its currently planned for span in 23 March 2016. The main focus of the programme has been in Kinshasa and Bunia with some training activities in Kasanga.

UNDP has mandated ISSAT to set up a three-person team (governance focus, police focus and evaluation methodology focus) to conduct a two-week evaluation mission to the main target areas of the programme and its sustainability regarding possible international support for a second phase.

The main objective of the evaluation is to look at the impact, sustainability, efficiency, effectiveness and relevance of the programme.

The mandate will also focus on building the capacity of the UNDP programme team in terms of institutional evaluation methodology. These skills will be used by the team to roll out similar future activities in Ituri.
