The Evaluation of Irish Aid’s Provincial Programme in Inhambane and Niassa provinces, Mozambique 2007-2016 assessed the effectiveness and performance of the Provincial Programmes, in order to inform the development of a new Mission Strategy in Mozambique.
The evaluation covered two programme cycles. The programme for the first period, 2007-2011, specifically sought to align with Mozambique’s poverty reduction strategy (PARPA II). Irish Aid’s Country Strategy Paper for the period 2012-2016 was organised around three broad outcomes that focused on reducing poverty and vulnerability by enhancing livelihoods, particularly at provincial level, improving health and learning outcomes, particularly for women and vulnerable groups, and improving government accountability to citizens and particularly the poor.
