End of Project Evaluation of the Climate Project (Namibia)

09 January 2018

The Environmental Awareness and Climate Change Project (here-after referred to as the 'Climate Project’), including its national information campaign (Think Namibia Environmental Awareness Campaign), came to an end in December 2017.

At the end of the project, the final evaluation was commissioned by the Hanns Seidel Foundation to assess the relevance, effectiveness and sustainability of results, as compared with the Baseline at the onset of the project. Evaluations such as these are important because they identify key areas for lessons learning for the HSF organisation as a whole, its future projects, as well as partners who were involved in the project implementation.

The Final Evaluation served to:

  • evaluate progress towards the project and campaign results at the end of implementation against the information baselines established during the Project Baseline Study (with focus on the four project result areas and the overall project objective (long-term impact);
  • assess the relevance, effectiveness and sustainability of effects of the four results areas outlined in the project logical framework and present clear conclusions about reaching the indicators with further recommendations;
  • elaborate a summary table indicating criteria rating of the result areas according to relevance, effectiveness and sustainability of the project specific objectives and results;
  • determine what are (if any) the positive and negative effects of the project (intended or unintended) which fall outside of the scope of the project logical framework;
  • present all the findings and recommendations in a comprehensive final project evaluation report.

The project evaluation process included face to face interviews, multiple surveys, as well as a review of all project documentation.
