The evaluation object is the National Employment Program of Rwanda, supported by the Swedish Embassy in Kigali through sector budget support from November 2014 to December 2019. The National Employment Programme (NEP) was launched in April 2014 by the Rwandan government as a five-year comprehensive intervention to address the unemployment challenges by addressing structural and institutional bottlenecks prevalent in labour supply and demand. The EoS has provided funding to the NEP under two funding agreements covering 2014-2017 and 2017-2019 respectivly, for a total of 156 400 000 SEK.

The purpose of the final evaluation is to provide an independent assessment of the results achieved by the NEP and contribute to learning by understanding cause-effect relationships and what factors made possible or created osbtacles to the achievement of these results. The evaluation should contribute with key evidence-based lessons and accionable recommendations to inform the implementation of the GoR’s new National Skills Development and Employment Promotion Strategy 2019-2024 and improve future interventions in the sector.
