The Independent Commission for Aid Impact (ICAI) undertook a review of DFID’s trade development work in Southern Africa during the first half of 2013. We reviewed two programmes: the £100 million TradeMark Southern Africa (TMSA) and the £9 million regional component of the Mozambique Regional Gateway Programme. Our fieldwork raised a number of serious concerns about TMSA’s ability to achieve impact.
This evaluation complements the Interim Evaluation carried out at the mid-term of the RAP. It analyses the experience with LAMIT and PSPS in greater depth and on the basis of a longer period of implementation (slightly more than three years).
