Evaluation of SA Regional Project to Strengthen Community Resilience to COVID-19

The Asia Foundation has commissioned us the end-of-project evaluation of its South Asia Regional Project to Strengthen Community Resilience to COVID-19. The EU-funded initiative addressed the immediate threat and longer-term implications of COVID-19 for the most vulnerable populations of Bangladesh, India, Maldives, Pakistan and Sri Lanka. Its goal was to provide greater awareness of health risks and preventive measures, better access to support services, reduced communal tensions and stigma, and greater responsiveness of public authorities to the voice and interests of the poor, women and girls, minorities, and other marginalised populations. Using the OECD-DAC evaluation criteria, the evaluation will focus on identifying lessons learned and making recommendations that project partners and stakeholders might use to improve the design and implementation of other related projects and programmes.
