Final Evaluation of Timor Leste Rural Development Programme

The final evaluation of the Timor Leste Rural Dvp Programme, which has been foreseen in the Technical and Administrative Provisions of the Commission Decision, provided the decision-makers in the Government of Timor Leste, the relevant services in the European Commission, the implementing partners (UNDP and the WB) and the wider public with sufficient information to: • make an overall independent assessment about the past performance of the programme / components, paying particularly attention to the impact of the actions against its overall objective and project purpose; • identify key lessons learnt and practical recommendations for future rural development programme / projects in Timor Leste. The evaluation study responds to the requirements of the last phase of the project cycle. The experts verified, analysed and assessed in detail the issues outlined in Annex II “Indicative Layout and Structure of the Final Evaluation Report”. The experts were requested to verify, analyse and assess the integration and impact of cross cutting issue in the project. They reviewed all relevant factors and bring these to the attention of the Government of Timor Leste and European Commission. The evaluation criteria have all been assessed taking into consideration the conclusions, recommendations and lessons learnt provided in the previous Mid Term Evaluation.
