The evaluation focuses on Sida’s management of MSD projects.

The projects are applying the MSD approach with an aim to:

  • contribute to improved MSD programming by Sida through better management practices across the project cycle
  • generate recommendations on how Sida can create conducive conditions for systems approaches and adaptive programming more generally. 

The brief assesses Sida’s organisational capacity for adaptive management in three dimensions: 

  • leadership and culture
  • staff capacities
  • skills, and systems and procedures
