Baseline study, Syria
The baseline study is part of the programme evaluation cycle. Its aim is to demonstrate the effectiveness and sustainability of the programme’s support to infrastructural rehabilitation of selected essential services, and the extent to which programme activities lead or contribute to the intermediate outcomes and ultimate goal of the programme. The programme aims to contribute to an improved quality of life for vulnerable conflict-affected populations in targeted areas, through an integrated multi-sectoral intervention.
The project began with a kick-off visit in Damascus, which contributed to a thorough understanding of the programme and context. The first draft of the baseline report was submitted to OFDA in January 2019. It received positive feedback from both the Syria team and OFDA.
