Formative Evaluation of Canada’s Development Assistance on Extractives and Sustainable Development | 2017

Sectors: Extractives 

Countries: Columbia, Mozambique, Peru, Tanzania

Client: Global Affairs Canada (GAC)

Global Affairs Canada commissioned a thematic evaluation of Canada’s development assistance on extractives and sustainable development programming for the period 2010 to 2016.  Evaluation questions were designed to address issues of relevance, effectiveness (including the cross-cutting themes of gender equality, governance and environmental sustainability), the sustainability of results achieved, as well as programming efficiency. Since Global Affairs Canada did not have a specific extractives and sustainable development program, evaluators identified and collected information on all projects that were internally coded as contributing to the extractive sector (either partially or fully) over the six years. The final portfolio included 77 projects that disbursed approximately $218 million. The evaluation also reviewed the policy work that Canada had done globally in the extractive sector.  The report can be found on the Global Affairs Website.
