Evaluator (2) Cat. 1

DG NEAR C1 is launching the evaluation of the Women in Business to assess the relevance, effectiveness, efficiency, impact and sustainability, plus coherence and value added of the programme.

Systematic and timely evaluation of its programmes and activities is an established priority of the European Commission. The focus of evaluations is on the assessment of achievements, the quality and the results of Actions in the context of an evolving cooperation policy with an increasing emphasis on result-oriented approaches and the contribution towards the implementation of the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).

The evaluation will assess the Action using the five standard DAC evaluation criteria, namely: relevance, effectiveness, efficiency, sustainability and early signs of impact. In addition, the evaluation will assess two EU specific evaluation criteria:
– the EU added value, both regarding its design and quality of implementation;
– the coherence of the project itself, with the EU strategy in the economic development sector and women empowerment and with other EU policies and Member States’ as well as other donors’ Actions.

The evaluation team shall furthermore consider whether environment and climate change were mainstreamed; the relevant SDGs and their interlinkages were identified and the extent to which they have been reflected in the implementation of the Action, its governance and monitoring.
