For Phase III: ACP countries’ national, city and community representatives and planning
authorities are empowered to implement innovative slum upgrading projects through 1) increased

demonstration projects and more comprehensive programmes and strategies, 3) increased
urbanisation and slum growth prevented through reviewed policies and slum upgrading
strategies, 4) opportunities for up-scaling and replication based on demonstration projects
assessed and implemented.

DESCRIPTION OF THE ASSIGNMENT

2.1.

Evaluation objectives and issues to be studied

2.1.1. Objectives and coverage
The Mid-Term evaluation will provide the decision-makers in the ACP Secretariat, the European
Commission and the wider public with sufficient information to:
• Make an overall independent assessment about the performance of the programme,
paying particularly attention to the impact of the programme actions against its
objectives;
• Identify key lessons and to propose practical recommendations for follow-up actions.
The present evaluation should cover the current implementation period of the 10th EDF
contribution but should also take into account the findings of the final evaluation of the
PSUP I under the 9th EDF and to assess the level of implementation of the recommendations
during PSUP II. In particular the study should evaluate how Country profiles (Phase I) have been
integrated in action plans (Phase II) and consequently in pilot projects (Phase III).
A sample of 12 countries has been selected for specific detailed case studies as part of this
evaluation and for which a specific and detailed field assessment will have to be carried out. The
evaluation team should however develop specific tools (such as questionnaires for instance) to
evaluate the remaining countries covered under the PSUP as the entire sample for this evaluation
includes all 34 countries covered by the programme.

2.1.2. Issues to be studied and Evaluation questions
The consultants shall verify, analyse and assess in detail the issues outlined in Annex II "Layout
and structure of the Final Report". The list of issues is not intended to be exhaustive. The issues
refer to the five evaluation criteria endorsed by the OECD-DAC (relevance, effectiveness,
efficiency, sustainability and impact), and to the EC-specific evaluation criteria (EC added value
and coherence). It should be noted that while always taking into account these standard
evaluation criteria this evaluation will be organised around a set of specific evaluation questions
(a maximum of 10). In such an approach, the criteria will be translated into specific questions,
and each question may address one or more of the criteria in its intent.
