This case study aimed to assess complementarity related to Finnish funded development co-operation by Non-Governmental Organisations (NGOs). The objective was to find new and innovative ways of deploying NGO co-operation. The case study involved an extensive review of the documentation, interviews in Finland and in seven partner countries, as well as surveys among NGO stakeholders.
The evaluation confirms that the NGO Foundations are relevant for providing smallscale NGO support. The Foundations assist implementation of Finnish development cooperation policy by supporting key cross-cutting issues and the human-rights based approach to development.
The purpose of the evaluation was to examine how successfully appraisal and followup as a part of the administration of NGO projects can be outsourced.
