In August 2010 the former United Nations Development Fund for Women (UNIFEM) undertook a Mid-term evaluation of Gender Support Programme (GSP) and the National Gender and Women Empowerment Strategic Action Plan (NGWESAP). This was necessitated by three major forces; firstly both NGWESAP and GSP were halfway to completion thus the need for a midterm reflection to inform future programming. Secondly NGWESAP and GSP were conceived when Zimbabwe was undergoing a humanitarian crisis. However, with the signing of the Global Political Agreement and the enactment of the Inclusive Government, Zimbabwe was in transition, this shift in the socio political and economic environment called for a midterm review of priorities set out in NGWESAP which inform GSP. Thirdly, the midterm evaluation was a fulfillment of donor requirements and in conformity to the former UNIFEMs Evaluation Policy. The midterm evaluation informed the strategic focus of the last phase of GSP to the three main thematic areas namely womens economic empowerment, ending gender based violence and womens participation in leadership nd decision making. The key recommendations were reviewed and implemented. In addition, the GSP was extended from two years to three year The specific objectives of the evaluation included evaluate; Programme relevance- the evaluation assessed the extent to which GSP objectives are consistent with beneficiaries requirements, country needs and global priorities. Programme effectiveness- the evaluation assessed achievements of the project objectives vs. what is stated in the project document, log frame and project outline Programme efficiency- the evaluation measured how economically GSP resources/inputs were converted to results ; considering inputs and output i.e. assessing value for money and management of budget Evaluating Project Outcomes and Impact- the evaluation assessed the key contributions and added value of short and long term, intended and unintended , positive/negative, GE/WE for management of the budget Partnerships the extent to which GSP has led to complementary and synergistic effects in the broader gender sector and how this has been. Project sustainability- The evaluation assessed the possibility of continuation of benefits accrued from GSP intervention.
