3. Purpose of the Evaluation
The evaluation is forward-looking and will effectively capture lessons learned and provide information on the nature, extent, and, where possible, the potential impact and sustainability of the BHA project. The evaluation will assess the project design, scope, implementation status, and capacity to achieve the project objectives. It will collate and analyze lessons learned, challenges faced, and best practices obtained during implementation, informing the programming strategy in the next programming phase. Additionally, the evaluation will examine gender and power dynamics, barriers, enablers, and challenges encountered during the project implementation. Gender will be a primary focus within each of the DAC criteria so that future programs can proactively adjust to address these issues or replicate and scale up on successful interventions that improved overall gender equity and equality.

It will assess the performance of the project against planned results. The evaluation will assess the preliminary indications of the potential impact and sustainability of the results of the project. The evaluation results will draw lessons that will inform the key stakeholders of this evaluation, including concerned Government sectors.
