Scope and Broad Objectives of the Evaluation
• After almost five years of intervention, WEWE plans to conduct an end-of-project evaluation of the Local Partners Initiative (LOPIN 2) project in order to document its achievements against targets, outcomes and possible impacts.

Specific Objectives
This end-of-project evaluation will address the following key evaluation objectives and develop recommendations based on the findings:

• Compare the achievements and cost-effectiveness of the use of Direct Program Implementers versus the traditional use of CBOs
