Evaluation of the European Union Africa Infrastructure Trust Fund

Evaluation of the European Union Africa Infrastructure Trust Fund

Detail

This evaluation focused on the implementation of the ITF at a programme / portfolio level. The objective was not to assess individual projects, however project level information has been reviewed for 10 projects as part of a case study analysis.

Overall there are many elements of the ITF which are valuable and clearly assist in the development of Infrastructure in Africa. The funding is required (as is much more) to continue to support these infrastructure programmes. On the whole, the ITF fulfills its role and is delivering results (although it is still very early in the infrastructure development process). The conclusions and recommendations support the ITF, while focusing on areas and opportunities to improve functioning and focus still further.
