Performance Evaluation: Improving Market Systems for Agriculture in Rwanda

LTS International Limited

The DFID-funded Improving Market Systems for Agriculture in Rwanda (IMSAR) aims to address the “inefficiency of market systems that prevent poor people from benefitting from agricultural opportunities”. The ultimate aim of the programme (its expected impact) is to increase the incomes of poor households in targeted agricultural market systems. LTS is contracted to provide Performance Evaluation of the program. The aims of the independent performance evaluation contract, as summarised in the ToR are: • Evaluate the adaptiveness and “application of flexibility” of the TSP and AgDevCo in implementing the programme (this entails process evaluation, including ongoing reviews of the ToC); • Evaluate the programme performance through an ‘impact-oriented’ assessment of the programme’s effects on inter alia the poor, cross cutting issues (nutrition, climate change and gender) and agricultural markets as part of the EPE; and • Evaluate the programme coherence (internal and external) by assessing and demonstrating synergies realised across and between IMSAR components, as well as with other ongoing programmes and activities of other actors (where relevant).

Investments in Forests and Sustainable Land Use for Partnerships for Forests – Evaluation Manager

LTS International Limited

International consensus is growing that climate change solutions must start in the land use sector. The Paris Climate Change Agreement has now been ratified by enough countries to enter into force, business and community leaders are committing to deforestation pledges in increasing numbers, and jurisdictional leaders are taking a leadership role on sustainable land use and agriculture. The Investment in Sustainable Land use programme addresses a key missing element – a pipeline of bankable investments in forests and sustainable land use. The programme is focused on convening companies and governments, building support for demand-side measures and generating momentum for improved enabling conditions), and the engagement of the technical assistance facility (TAF) management contractor, DFID aims to catalyse increased private investment in sustainable forestry and ‘zero-deforestation’ agriculture. The TAF, managed by Palladium and McKinsey & Company is termed Partnerships for Forests (P4F). The P4F has prepared a strategy for results monitoring and learning at the project and programme levels (P4F MEL Strategy). The LTS consortium acts as the evaluation manager. In this role, we work in a coordinated manner with P4F, DFID and relevant actors and stakeholders to create a fully coherent, overarching evaluation and learning framework, in which the programme’s objectives are translated - through a theory of change - into a validated planning and reporting structure from which evaluation questions, and associated indicators, can be formulated.

Green Economic Growth Programme (GEGP) in Papua Provinces in Indonesia

LTS International Limited

The Green Economic Growth Programme for Papua Provinces (GEG) is providing technical support for small and medium enterprises (SME) development from the bottom-up, while increasing the confidence to go-into-business. The Programme aims to increase the confidence of local authorities to manage local economic development and attract investors to rural and urban regions of Papua Provinces. The programme will identify and support a portfolio of SMEs that will serve as an inspiration for a green investment strategy to both provinces in Papua. The success of selected small holder farmers (SHFs) and SMEs should catalyse more green investment by leveraging successful interventions to crowd-in public and private finance to potential green enterprises in both provinces. The programme will address five critical issues preventing Papuan SHFs and SMEs from developing sustainable agribusiness enterprises and viable small businesses: • weak capacity (low levels of education, lack of knowledge and basic business skills) of SHFs and SMEs; • Papuan SHFs and SMEs in remote rural locations struggle to produce commercially viable volumes of commodities and have very limited access to markets; • most Papuan SMEs have difficulty accessing commercially viable amounts of credit and face high entry barriers; • a lack of coordination and synergy among key government agencies and donors that are supposed to support Papuan SHFs and SMEs; • the high cost of official licensing and permits required to do business, and the unofficial costs associated with local rent seeking. The programme delivery has been structured around 5 technical work streams: • Market Systems; • Socio-Economics and Gender; • Farming and Production Systems; • Credit and Finance; • Business Incubator and Investor Engagement.

Knowledge, Policy and Implementation Support Manager (KPISM) for Building Resilience and adapting to climate change programme (BRACC) in Malawi

LTS International Limited

The BRACC programme is investing in four key interlinked components: 1. Climate resilient livelihoods: up to £52 million to reduce the impact of climate shocks on poor and vulnerable households through asset transfers; improved agricultural production; natural resource management; and access to more diverse income streams. This is being delivered through a joint Non-Government Organisation (NGO) and United Nations (UN) led consortium called Promoting Sustainable Partnerships for Empowered Resilience (PROSPER). 2. Provision of a scalable safety net ‘crises modifier’: up to £20million to respond to predictable seasonal food insecurity needs and climate shocks through an increase in safety net value per person and/or numbers of people covered in the face of shocks. This is also being delivered through PROSPER 3. Strengthening social protection systems: up to £5million to strengthen national safety nets programmes so that in the longer term, they meet the basic needs of the poorest and respond to climate shocks when necessary. This is delivered through a Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) with Germany (BMZ/GIZ) and is co-financed by Germany and the European Union (EU). 4. Evidence, knowledge and policy influence: up to £8million to generate evidence and learning to drive programme decisions and inform government policy (£1.4million of this that has already been committed). This will be complemented by targeted technical assistance to government on social protection, disaster risk management and climate change adaptation. An accountable grant was put in place with the International Food Policy Research Institute (IFPRI) on an interim basis, until the ‘Knowledge, Policy and Implementation Support Manager (KPISM)’, who will deliver the services set out in these Terms of Reference, is in place. A handover is anticipated during the Inception Phase. In addition, £1 million has been allocated to support Illegal Wildlife Trade (IWT) related activities in communities surrounding protected areas. This is being delivered through an Accountable Grant with African Parks. A further £4million has been allocated to co-finance USAID’s Modern Cooking for Healthy Forests programme which aims to strengthen Malawi’s resilience to climate change by countering deforestation and forest degradation, reducing soil erosion, improving land management and supporting sustainable livelihoods. Overall the programme aims to target around 300,000 households with a set of integrated interventions designed to increase household and community resilience to weather and climate related shocks. Key activities include: • Climate Smart Agriculture • Nutrition sensitive interventions • Integrated watershed management • Natural resource management • Disaster risk reduction and Climate services • Market systems development and inclusive business models • Micro-finance and micro-insurance • Shock-responsive social protection • Lean season response • District and national systems strengthening and coordination

Monitoring and Evaluation of the Climate Public Private Partnership Programme Phase II

LTS International Limited

The overall aim of the CP3 project is to increase the role of private sector finance in driving low carbon, climate resilient growth in developing countries. CP3 aims to increase the amount of funding in Private Equity (PE) in the climate friendly space both by directly funding two commercially run PE Funds (who in turn fund sub funds and projects which would therefore be able to conclude their investments) and thus inducing a leveraging effect, i.e. bringing on board other donors and other institutional investors (sovereign wealth funds, pension funds and insurance funds), as well as by making direct investments in the climate area. This will also have a “demonstration effect”, showing that PE climate investment (and climate projects in general), have good financial risk and return, thereby helping the climate friendly market to grow faster. As such, CP3 will stimulate low carbon sustainable growth in developing countries. The objective of this assignment is to assess the success of the CP3 programme in driving low-carbon, climate resilient growth in developing countries. We will capture, through on-going monitoring, the results of the programme as set out in the log frame and test the original theory of change model and its underlying assumptions. Several impact dimensions will be assessed, including among others, success in leveraging private investments for climate mitigation and adaptation, human development impacts, as well as transformational impacts such as the creation of financial infrastructure and the development of local capital markets that can help lever additional private investment. Where appropriate, opportunities for improvement will be identified and communicated on an ongoing basis to refocus efforts where necessary and to inform similar projects.
