Detailed description of project Back

The project MLI/005, of three year duration, is one of two elements of the first phase of the Luxembourg intervention in the Ségou Region. Two of the most disadvantaged districts (called ‘Cercles‘ in Mali) in the region were chosen to benefit from this intervention: Bla and Tominian.

The project incorporates the orientations derived from a review of recent publications on decentralisation and sector strategies in Africa and from an analysis of current experiences in Mali. Two sector entry points were chosen from three sectors that were the subject of the decentralisation Enforcement Order: basic education (formal and non-formal) and health (and also social development). The project is involved in poverty reduction following the two first main lines of the Strategic Framework for Poverty Reduction (Cadre stratégique de la lutte contre la pauvreté, CSLP): institutional development and improvement of governance and public participation; and human development and improvement of access to basic social services (including Education and Health). Worked out from a strategic viewpoint , the project aims:

  • To reinforce the decentralisation;
  • To reconcile decentralisation and devolution in the frame of the large national sector programmes (DNCT, PRODEC et PRODESS).

The main objective of this mission is to undertake the intermediate evaluation of the project.

Type of services provided

The evaluation team consists of three experts: an expert in decentralisation and devolution (team leader), an expert in education (basic education, non-formal education, vocational training) and an expert in primary health care.

PROMAN provides the services of the expert in education.

The main tasks are :

  • Analysis of the results and the specific objective(s) reached at the time of the evaluation, compared with what had been anticipated in the project document;
  • Description of the zone covered and the project beneficiaries;
  • Analysis of the project’s management and monitoring;
  • Analysis of the project in terms of relevance, effectiveness, efficiency and sustainability, taking into account crosscutting aspects (poverty reduction, governance, gender, environment).
