This mid-term evaluation focuses on the Sida financed “International Training Programme (ITP 315) Prevent and Respond to Gender-Based Violence 2017-2025”. This is a programme that targets organisations and authorities in five countries in the Western Balkans (Albania, Kosovo, Moldova, Montenegro and Ukraine), which were selected as they are all part of the Swedish development cooperation’s Result Strategy for Sweden’s reform cooperation with Eastern Europe, the Western Balkans and Turkey 2014-2020.
At a global level, the ITP programme contributes to Swedish Government strategies. When it was formed in 2017, it aimed to contribute to goal 2 (Strengthened democracy, greater respect for human rights and a more fully developed state under the rule of law) of the Swedish strategy at the time, and more recently, Strategy for capacity development, partnership and methods that support the 2030 agenda for sustainable development 2018-2022, which has been extended from December 2022 to December 2023.


The evaluation seeks to evaluate in specific, the relevance, effectiveness, and efficiency of the ITP in relation to the programme objectives (previously highlighted) and applicable Swedish Government strategies. By conducting this review, the evaluation is expected to produce substantive conclusions and recommendations for the management team on how project implementation may be modified and improved. 


The intended use of this evaluation is to help Sida and its partners, the Swedish Police and Kvinna till Kvinna, to assess progress of the ongoing ITP on GBV to learn what works well, less well or does not work well, for whom, under what circumstances and how. The evaluation will be used to identify which results and outcomes have been achieved so far, how/why they were achieved or not, and if the results of the intervention are relevant to stakeholders.
