Terminal Evaluation of  Jatropha farming Project in Malindi and Magarini Districts, Coast Province, Kenya

Background Information

Comitato Internazionale per lo Sviloppo dei Popoli (CISP) in partnership with Kenya Forest Research Institute (KEFRI) and associate with the Ministry of Agriculture (MoA) is implementing a project in Malindi and Magarini Districts (Kilifi County) titled “Support to and Expansion of Malindi Bio-fuel Cluster-Jatropha-Farming”. 

This is a four-year project funded by the European Commission through the European Development Fund. 

CISP is the lead implementing organization executing all project activities while KEFRI and MoA are involved in research and monitoring activities respectfully. 
The project action-plan was informed by a brainstorming discussion between, KEFRI, CISP and the District Agricultural Officer (DOA) of Malindi on the possibilities of implementing a project on sustainable Jatropha farming. 
The project was incepted in June 2011 and is expected to end in June 2015.
The project targeting 1200 farmers within the mentioned areas is designed to improve self sufficiency and increase sustainability of local communities in terms of energy supply.

It is within the project a midterm evaluation is foreseen. 

This mid-term evaluation will cover Jatropha activities for the period June 2011 to December 2013. 
The rationale of the mid-term evaluation (MTE) is to enable CISP and project stakeholders to:
(a) Assess the continued relevance of project objectives and planned outcomes, including the implicit and explicit assumptions and risks of the project.
(b) Assess the outputs produced and outcomes achieved as compared to those planned and to verify prospects for development impact and sustainability.
(c) Assess the efficiency of implementation: quantity, quality, cost and timeliness of inputs and activities.
(d) Provide an analytical basis and recommendations for the continuation of the project.
(e) Draw lessons of wider application for the replication of the experience gained in other projects
