Today, one of the major challenges for agriculture is its capacity to ensure sustainable food and nutrition security for the world’s growing population in the context of resources scarcity, aggravated by the impacts of climate change. Climate change is among the major challenges that needs urgent attention in the 21th century. Sierra Leone is vulnerable to climate change: the climate-sensitive agriculture sector provides livelihoods for 75% of its population and contributes more than 50% of its Growth Domestic Product. Agriculture is also among the largest emitting sectors as regards greenhouse gas emissions. Since 1960, there has been evidence of increasing temperature, decrease and unpredictable rainfall and substantial climatic hazards such as floods, changed rainfall patterns, strong winds, thunderstorm and seasonal droughts. In recent times the gradual change in rainfall patterns and temperatures in the country has threatened the fragile agricultural system. In addition adaptation efforts are still hindered by the lack of access to information, technical or financial support that could help farmers invest in more climate-resilient agriculture.
The overall objective of the evaluation is to assess the project’s overall performance and determine whether the project’s intended outputs and outcomes were achieved, with a clear explanation of why or why not through an integrated analysis of the entire result chain (inputs, activities, outputs, and outcomes) as well as contextual factors.
The OECD/DAC criteria (Likely Impact, Coherence, Coverage, effectiveness, efficiency, relevance, and sustainability) will be used in the evaluation. In addition, the consultant will examine the design of the program. The evaluator must fill out the DAC assessment criteria table and attach it to the report as an appendix.
The specific objectives to be addressed by the evaluation are;
As an expected result, the analysis of this evaluation data would answer the evaluative questions as highlighted in section 5 below.
