Evaluation of Sida’s support to Kvinna till Kvinna (KtK) and its programme “Palestinian women seek greater power and influence to organize for democratic state building” 2011-2013
Sida has supported Kvinna till Kvinna (KtK) programs in regions affected by war and armed conflict since 1994 in the Balkans and later in Caucasus and the MENA region. Sida’s support to KtK program in the West Bank and Gaza started in 2002. The programme evaluated in this assignment covered the period January 2011 – December 2013. The main goals of the programme in the occupied Palestinian territories (oPt) were:
- to increase women's participation in public and political life,
- to increase women’s access to power and influence in peace building,
- to eliminate barriers that restrict the full exercise of their human rights and ensure their security.
In addition to KtK's financial support to the organizations’ own work and as a complement, KtK carries out capacity building activities and facilitating spaces for interaction and networking.
Sida conducted SIPU to carry out an evaluation of their support to Kvinna till Kvinna and its programme “Palestinian women seek greater power and influence to organize for democratic state building” 2011-2013. The evaluation had two main purposes:
- To conduct a results-based evaluation in order to see to what extent the project objectives and its main purpose had been achieved and to what degree the activities had contributed to this achievement.
- To provide recommendations, information and lessons learned in order to (i) serve as a basis for decision of future Sida support to KtK’s programme in the West Bank and Gaza and (ii) to serve as a basis for KtK in designing the coming programme phase 2014-2017 to further improve on women’s rights.
