Jordanian Community Development and Support Program – Final Evaluation – Dec 2017

This evaluation report provides an evidence-based assessment of the effectiveness and impact of the “Jordanian Community Development and Support” Program, funded by Global Affairs Canada (GAC), implemented from October 2014 to December 2017, in the Northern and Central regions of Jordan, specifically in Amman, Irbid, Mafraq and Zarqa governorates. Given the protracted nature of the Syrian crisis, which has exacerbated an already precarious economic situation in Jordan, the project was able to attend to a diverse group of beneficiaries, including youth, women and men from the Syrian refugee and Jordanian communities. This Program has effectively supported the following initiatives: (1) The provision of case management, information services, and one-time cash infusions to extremely vulnerable Jordanian households; (2) The support of the economic development of Jordanians through a micro-finance lending initiative; and (3) The establishment of community programs for youth to improve their vocational skills and opportunities and reinforce positive relationships between the Jordanian and Syrian communities. The evaluation was conducted by the Programs Quality Unit at CARE International in Jordan, in compliance with the Public Recognition Guidelines for Global Affairs Canada Development Partners.

POWER Africa Endline Linkage Effects Analysis Report May 2018

This report contains an endline analysis of CARE’s POWER/PROFIR (Promoting Opportunities for Women’s Economic Empowerment) project on the financial health of village savings and loans groups in Cote d’Ivoire and Rwanda. The project is a collaboration between CARE Canada, Access Africa, and MasterCard Foundation. POWER Africa /PROFIR is based on the VSLA approach as a means to provide access to valuable financial services and build a pathway towards formal financial inclusion for poor households in rural areas. The key measures of the effects of linkage that are assess in this study are (1) Standardized return on savings (ROS), (2) Standardized return on assets (ROA), (3) Savings per member, (4) bank balances, (5) bank account usage, and (6) Adoption of individual bank accounts. These indicators measure the outcomes of the project along key dimensions of POWER Africa/PROFIR’s objectives of building financial capacity for all clients and decreasing gender gaps in access to and control of financial skills, assets, and services. We also look at how group characteristics, like the proportion of women members, attendance, access to credit, and proximity to financial service providers interact with linkage status to affect groups’ outcomes.

Emergency Assistance and Safe Spaces for Crisis Affected People in Jordan

After the outbreak of the Syrian conflict in 2011, millions of Syrians fled to neighboring countries in search of refuge. Over 668,123 fled to Jordan, of which 8 in 10 are living outside of refugee camps. Since 2011, CARE Jordan has taken a leading role in responding to the needs of this population, conducting annual assessments of the Syrian urban refugee population in Jordan to tailor programming to refugees’ most pressing needs. Building upon these findings, CARE Jordan launched the Emergency Assistance and Safe Spaces for Crisis Affected People in Jordan project with funding from the Australian Government’s Department of Immigration and Border protection (DIBP) between July 2016 and July 2018. CARE Jordan partnered with local CBOs to implement the project, which has an overall goal of enhancing socio-economic wellbeing and quality of life for the refugee and host population in Jordan. Specifically, the project aimed to: (1) increase access to sustainability livelihoods for Syrian refugee and host community women; (2) improve the psycho-social coping mechanisms of vulnerable individuals; (3) increase the access of Syrian refugees and vulnerable Jordanian host populations to emergency cash assistance; and (4) increase the access of Syrian refugees and vulnerable host populations to information, case management and protection support.

SABA+ II Final de Fase

La segunda fase del Proyecto SABA PLUS abarcó el periodo comprendido entre abril del 2015 a abril del 2018. El cual registra a lo largo de este tiempo una serie de resultados, efectos y contribución al sector agua y saneamiento a nivel nacional e internacional, siendo uno de los referentes más importantes en América Latina.

Esto se debe en gran medida al compromiso constante y decidido de la Agencia Suiza para el Desarrollo y la Cooperación COSUDE de la Embajada Suiza, porque la gestión del agua y saneamiento rural de manera descentralizada, en un inicio (hace 2 décadas), solo era imaginado como proyecto piloto; sin embargo la búsqueda de la tan ansiada sostenibilidad llevó a crear y ser parte de una red de actores (de alcance nacional, regional y local) más compleja, que ha permitido que actualmente tales actores se hayan apropiado del enfoque SABA.

SABA+ IEP Informe Final

El Proyecto de Saneamiento Básico Rural SABA de la Agencia Suiza para el Desarrollo y la Cooperación COSUDE, a lo largo de 20 años ha validado un enfoque de intervención en el sector agua y saneamiento del ámbito rural en el Perú. Una característica transversal y central del enfoque SABA, a través de su larga trayectoria, ha sido el trabajo con las contrapartes nacionales, específicamente con el sector público, en sus tres niveles de gobierno y específicamente con los Ministerios y Programas involucrados en el sector agua y saneamiento, cuya principal responsabilidad es el acceso a servicios básicos y por lo tanto tiene la desafiante labor de que trabajan disminuyendo disminuir la brecha, así como la mejora en la calidad del servicio en el ámbito rural.

A partir del 2012, el Ministerio de Vivienda Construcción y Saneamiento (MVCS), ente rector del agua y saneamiento a nivel nacional, puso en el centro de sus prioridades: “el Crecimiento con Inclusión” y bajo esta frase resaltó la agenda rural y por lo tanto la prioridad de buena parte de sus políticas y programas.
