SW Nepal conducted the final evaluation of CTIP program interventions and assessed the major achievements of the program, relevance, progress as indicators, gap, challenges and suggested way forward for future program design and implementation.
This objective of this evaluation was to further build up the finding and suggestions of the previous draft report which included, how the project incorporated the suggestions moving forward after mid-term evaluation, look at component wise (Protection, Prevention, Prosecution and Capacity Building and Coordination) achievements (both at the outcome and impact level), identify success stories as well as gap and challenges that may still remain, how the project strategies were responsive to the contextual challenges, such as the earthquake, political disturbances.

SW Nepal was assigned by the Asia Foundation for the final evaluation of extended programme (July 2016 to March 2017) to assess the gaps, challenges and achievements of the program under each of its thematic components, i.e., Protection, Prosecution, Prevention and Capacity building and Coordination. Furthermore, assignment intended to document lessons learnt and success stories and to analyze by what means the program strategies have contributed in making core interventions sustainable beyond the life of the project and provide recommendations for similar future interventions.
SW Nepal also supported TAF to finalize the CTIP close-out report in cooperating findings and impact of program as USAID requirement. TAF organized one day training program to orient all CTIP implementing partners on capturing major results and achievement of program as well as to enhance their monitoring, evaluation, documentation and reporting skills.
The team coordinated closely with the district authorities including District Development Committee, DUDBC (DL-PIU) and NRA. The team also coordinated with the local authorities to support the home owners with regards to earthquake resilient house construction. SW Nepal conducted need assessment survey of the house owners through open data kit (ODK).
This assessment gave an idea to fulfil the gaps and provide the support to home owners. Overall, the end of project evaluation further assessed how the project strategies have contributed to making some of the core interventions sustainable beyond the life of the project which will assist for further program design on the issues from its lessons learnt.
