Impact Assessment of Six JICA’s Projects

PROJECT DESCRIPTION

There were two main objectives to the ex-post evaluation: (i) to extract lessons learned and recommendations to improve future JICA planning,  and improve  implementation capacity of the implementation agencies through informing them on the impact and sustainability of the projects; and (ii) to meet the accountability to  the Japanese tax payers through producing reports.
