The evaluation has looked at Norway's engagement in South Sudan during the period 2011-2018 (with a look back to 2005). The evaluation has assessed the effects of the total Norwegian engagement, considered whether the engagement has been coherent and conflict sensitive and assessed how the Norwegian engagement has been adapted to a changing context. The purpose of the evaluation is to contribute to both learning and accountability.
A considerable amount of Norway's support goes to conflict-affected countries. Such support requires different approaches than support to more stable countries. Because the challenges are complex, there may be a need for peacebuilding, humanitarian aid and long-term development assistance at the same time. Previous evaluations have pointed out that good contextual knowledge is crucial for robust development aid. On this background, the Evaluation Department has initiated evaluations examining overall Norwegian support in selected countries in fragile situations. The evaluation of the Norwegian engagement in South Sudan is the first of these.
The evaluation was carried out by the Danish consulting company Tana Copenhagen, in collaboration with the Chr Michelsen Institute (CMI) and the Overseas Development Institute (ODI), on behalf of the Evaluation Department in Norad. The report is published inb two volumes (main report and annexes)
