HPI and WISE Development have been awarded the Global Evaluation Framework Agreement 2 for Lot 1 covering Impact Evaluation.

HPI and WISE alongside the other consortium partners provides technical assistance to support Human Development in the following areas:

  • health
  • water supply
  • sanitation
  • social protection

This framework builds on its predecessor GEFA, through which HPI supported the implementation of the Evaluation of Maternal Newborn and Child Health Programme in Zimbabwe and the Evaluation of the Health Partnership Scheme.

GEFA 2 covers a range of geographic locations including fragile and conflicted- affected states.
