Sustainable and Effective Economic Development (SEED) Project Summative Evaluation Report

The Sustainable and Effective Economic Development (SEED) project was a seven-year initiative that started in January, 2006, and ended in April, 2013. The project was funded by CIDA and managed by CARE Canada and CARE Mozambique in partnership with Irish Aid, the International Fund for Agricultural Development (IFAD) and the International Livestock Research Institute (ILRI). CIDA’s contribution was $7.5 million. Irish Aid contributed Euros 1,218,906 towards funding for the cashew component of the project, and IFAD contributed Euros 353,630 towards funding for the goat component with research undertaken by ILRI staff.
The SEED project was implemented in a difficult and challenging environment. The primary stakeholders were the women and men living in the rural communities of the project area and their needs were many. Most were living at a subsistence level in some of the poorest districts and communities of Mozambique. There were limited economic opportunities as these communities were dispersed, populations sparse and transport access was very difficult to and between many communities. There was also a lack of service providers supplying agricultural inputs or technical support at the community and government levels. These communities were confronted with incidences of HIV/AIDS and the numbers of female headed households were high. [76 pages] Read More...

COSACA I Final Evaluation

The COSACA consortium composed of Save the Children, Concern, Oxfam and Care International implemented with DFID funding from 1st of October 2013 to 30th of September 2016, but extended to 30th of November 2016, a project called - Floods Emergency Response and from 15th of December 2015 to 30th of October 2016, extending until 30th of November 2016 a Preparedness and Drought Response Project. The consortium was set up with the aim of making intervention modalities efficient and effective in emergency response issues regarding prevention and mitigation of the impact of natural disasters in the country.
This report presents the results of the level of project implementation in the two components: drought and floods. The purpose of the evaluation is to examine the effectiveness, efficiency, relevance, impact and sustainability of the activities implemented by COSACA, so that, on the basis of best practices and lessons learned, recommendations should stand out that will serve as a model for other consortia in Mozambique, in other African countries, and on the other hand, to improve future strategies for coordination and management of the consortium, as well as to propose better ways to implement future successful activities.

ECD Program Baseline Report Summary

The CARE ECD Program is being implemented in two districts in the Inhambane Province. Homoine is a small, densely populated district with 107 475 inhabitants as of 2007. Consumption poverty rates are around 51% with the majority of the population living along the coastline and along transit routes with access to some good farmland relative to the rest of the province.

Funhalouro is a large, sparsely populated district with 44 320 inhabitants as of 2007. The area is prone to food insecurity and drought. With a consumption poverty rate above 69%, Funhalouro is one of the most vulnerable and impoverished areas of Inhambane. Because it is remote and the population dispersed there are few development interventions in Funhalouro.

The ECD program is an implementation science project because we are finding out how best to implement a home-based Early Childhood Development (ECD) intervention in these two different sites. This focus on implementation science means that a large part of the evaluation of the ECD project will include on-going qualitative research on which implementation strategies work best where and why.

One of the aims was to make sure that the Mozambican government had an example of an ECD model that could work in contexts where a pre-school model would have little chance of being successful.

They also were able to adopt many climate change practices on their fields that helped them respond to emergencies. The first thing families in Mozambique invest in when they get more savings and credit is their children’s education. Read More...
