    Evaluation: Finland’s Development Policy Programmes from a Results-Based Management Point of View 2003–2013

    This evaluation finds that the Ministry for Foreign Affairs still lacks a comprehensive approach to Result-Based Management at the corporate level and that future policy implementation should be guided by a long-term strategic plan that is underpinned by a comprehensive Strategic Results Framework. Future policy direction by incoming governments should be in the form of concise policy statements that provide input into this plan.

    Strategic Evaluation of the EU Cooperation with Timor-Leste (2008-2013)

    Most EU interventions were in line with national priorities and rural population needs, as well as supporting Timor-Leste’s regional and international relationships in recognition of the priority attached by the Government to these goals.

    DFID Syria Crisis Unit, Humanitarian Programme Process Evaluation

    DFID’s management of its response to the Syria crisis could have been considerably better. In 2012 DFID did not have experience of how to operate a response to a challenge like the Syria crisis. It made some poor initial decisions. However, DFID’s Grant allocation appears to work effectively. During 2014 DFID moved the programme onto a more stable footing, with a longer-term focus and more multi-year funding.

    Evaluation of Policy Dialogue as an Instrument in Swedish Development Cooperation - the case of Gender Equality

    Despite some flaws, policy dialogue has been an effective tool overall. Swedish embassies have been able to use it in diverse contexts to help achieve Sweden’s development co-operation objectives. There is also clear evidence it has contributed to increased gender equality, particularly regarding development or revision of gender-specific laws. It had the least effect in terms of governments increasing resources for gender equality.

    Business and Human Rights in Development Cooperation – has Sweden Incorporated the UN Guiding Principles

    The study finds examples of policy commitments to improved human rights practices by companies as well as diligent efforts in agencies and State-owned companies. The observed good practices by the State institutions appear to reflect results of systematic efforts with regards to implementation of human rights commitments. This is due to internal work in the institutions and not to specific requirements posed by the State ministries.
