All NAMA Support Projects (NSPs) with an overall duration of more than three years are subject to a mid-term and to a final evaluation and learning exercise (ELE). These ELEs are part of the NAMA Facility’s working approach to catalyse transformational change through incremental monitoring processes that allow fearless learning.
The Technical Support Unit (TSU) has commissioned AMBERO and Oxford Policy Management to conduct the ELEs. The exercise is based on a theoretical framework which involves a document review, participatory workshops and stakeholder interviews to collect evidence about NSPs’ results and lessons. These elements are then analysed using a theory-based approach centered on the use of contribution analysis and reinforced by elements of process tracing. The ELEs seek to address the following questions:
Has the NSP achieved its results?
Has the NSP started to trigger transformational change?
What was learnt from the NSP so far?
The document presents the findings of the mid-term ELE from “Colombia – Transit-Oriented Development (TOD)“. The focus is on the progress of the project’s Financial Component and the evaluation was undertaken during the period from June to September 2022.
