As research tools we used a preliminary developed guideline for focus groups and an unstructured questionnaire for in-depth interviews. About 4 focus groups and 7 face-to-face interviews were conducted within the qualitative research. 41 individuals participated in the qualitative research.

Local Action Group (LAG) members were identified as a target group of the qualitative research. In particular, participants of the research were representatives from the general assembly and the board of LAG. It is necessary to mention that Local Action Group is composed of the representatives of CSOs, private sector and local government.

Working for impact in Papua New Guinea: CARE International’s portfolio review

This review focuses on CARE International’s program portfolio in Papua New Guinea (PNG) over the past five years (2013-2018). CARE’s goal in PNG is to achieve significant, positive and lasting impact on poverty and social injustice in remote, marginalised rural areas through the empowerment of women and their communities and through effective partnerships. CARE has worked in PNG since 1989 and now has offices in Goroka in Eastern Highlands Province, Mt Hagen in Western Highlands Province, Buka in the Autonomous Region of Bougainville (ARB) and an office in Port Moresby.
Over the past five years, CARE’s program in PNG has worked in multiple areas: sexual, reproductive and maternal health, community health promotion, awareness and behaviour change; inclusive governance; women’s economic empowerment; climate change adaptation and disaster risk reduction; and emergency response. These programs have been implemented in PNG’s particularly challenging operating environment. Read More...

Implementation of Social Accountability Framework (ISAF) Project

This is the End of Project Evaluation for CARE’s Implementation of Social Accountability Framework (ISAF) Project. ISAF was implemented in four target provinces (Ratank Kiri, Mondul Kiri, Koh Kong and Kampot) over 36 months (2016-2018). ISAF aimed to reduce poverty through democratic, inclusive and equitable local governance and more accessible and equitable public service delivery. ISAF worked with local NGOs (LNGOs) that were provided grants through the project and citizens of the four targeted provinces who received improved services (commune, health centres and primary schools).
Impact indicators report resounding levels of satisfaction by citizens of local services, responsiveness of local service providers (as perceived by citizens) and discernable improvement in local services delivery (as perceived by citizens). End of project targets and MTR levels are by far exceeded in all categories. End of project targets and MTR levels are by far exceeded in all categories, the only exceptions being the OO1 and OO2. OO1’s target was exactly met, while for *OO2 accurate data was not able to be sourced, given that the maternal mortality rate is measured at a provincial level and was not calculated by the government during the project period.
An alternative indicator of impact over the past three years, is the percentage of women giving birth at a public health facility, which increased (44% to 56%), while the percentage of women giving birth at home decreased (29% to 10%).1 This reflects that ISAF (amongst other factors) contributed to the impact/change in beneficiary behavior i.e. that women are accessing more health care facilities to give birth.
