The evaluation object is the Bilateral cooperation between KEMI and ZEMA on pesticide management, which is three years and 6months (6months being an inception Phase) project being implemented by KEMI.

The Bilateral cooperation aligns with Sweden’s strategy for Zambia 2018-2023 and is expected to contribute to the attainment of two strategy goals of Strategy Area 3; (Environment, Climate, Renewable Energy and Sustainable, Inclusive Economic Development and Livelihood) which are: a) Sustainable use of natural resources, increased sustainable productivity and production in agriculture, and increased resilience to climate change; and b) Improved opportunities for sustainable livelihoods, with a focus on productive employment with decent working conditions, particularly for women and young people. The cooperation also contributes to one strategy goal in the Strategy Area 1 (Human rights, democracy, the rule of law and gender equality) which is Strengthened capacity in public institutions, including capacity to mobilise additional actors and resources for sustainable development.

The purpose or intended use of the evaluation was to help The Embassy, ZEMA and KEMI assess progress of the on-going bilateral cooperation and learn from what works well and less well. The evaluation will be used to inform decisions on how project implementation may be adjusted and improved and priorities for any potential future support.
