Evaluation of Training for Peace in Africa
This is an evaluation of the impact of Training for Peace in Africa (TfP). TfP is major programme funded by the Norwegian Ministry of Finance, established in 1995, and implmented by ACCORD and the Institute of Security Studies (ISS) in South Africa, The African Civilian Response Capacity for Peace Support Operations (AFDEM) in Zimbabwe, the Kofi Annan Peacekeeping Training Centre (KAIPTC) in Ghana, and the Norwegian Institute of International Affairs (NUPI) in Norway.
The main objecrive of TfP is to build sustainable African civilian and police peacekeeping capacities that are needed in order to implement multidimensional UN and AU peackeeping mandates.
- Relevant and high quality training to African peacekeeping and peacebuilding personnel;
- Well-functioning recruitment and roster systems established in Africa;
- Relevant policy frameworks utilized by UN, AU and the RECs/RM;
- Relevant and high quality research.
This independent evaluation, commissioned by Norad's evaluation department, will focus on all programme areas with a main emphasis on the relevance, impact and cost efficiency of the training programme implemented by TfP.
- Mapping of the context in which TfP operates;
- Development and fleshing out of programme logic in a theory-of-change exercise;
- Theory-driven evaluation of the research, policy and roster components that draws on contribution analysis;
- Impact assessment of the programme’s training component using a tailored tracer study methodology;
- Based on the evaluation findings, a cost effectiveness assessment of the training component; and
- Analytical synthesis of the above outputs that assesses the relevance of the TfP to the context and to its original theory of change/programme logic, draws out key findings and makes recommendations.
The evaluation will make a purposeful use of mixed methods – with both qualitative and quantitative data collection and analysis.
