Evaluation of the Integrated Programme for the Empowerment of Indigenous Peoples and Sustainable Development of Ancestral Land

By: Conchita M. Ragragio

The purpose of the End-of-Project Evaluation of the Integrated Programme for the Empowerment of Indigenous Peoples and Sustainable Development of Ancestral Domains (IP-EIPSDADS) is to assess the results of the project and to draw lessons from its implementation to guide similar endeavors in the future. Specifically, the objectives of the evaluation are:

To determine the role collaboration played in achieving the intended results;

To determine how inputs, activities and outputs were delivered within each geographic area and if direct results can be attributed to the project; and

To suggest ways to scale up efforts in the future.

During the course of the evaluation, the following activities were undertaken:

1. Project-related documents as well as relevant background materials were reviewed and their content analyzed;

2. Participatory evaluation workshops were conducted;

3. Small group discussions and one-on-one interviews with key informants were undertaken;

4. Deliverables were reviewed and assessed; and

5. The efficiency and effectiveness of project methodology, strategies, outputs and outcomes were examined.

Major findings of the evaluation are included, followed by key recommendations that address the gaps and shortcomings experienced by the project and which, hopefully, would provide direction for similar projects in the future.
