The focus of this mid-term evaluation is on relevance, efficiency and effectiveness of the support and particularly the impact and results of WFD’s activities at regional and country-specific levels. The Mid-term Evaluation (MTE) also intends to determine if, at the midway point of the support, WFD is meeting HMG expectations and whether it is on course to achieve the results and outcomes envisaged in the business plan submitted and approved by DFID in 2012.
This final report presents an evaluation of the Westminster Foundation for Democracy (WFD) corporate
programme performance during the past 3 years (2012-2015). The evaluation builds on previous
assessments, including the Mid-Term Evaluation (MTE)4 and the Triennial Review (TR)5. The evaluation looks at ensuring accountability and learning from DFID political governance portfolio
interventions. In addition to undertaking an assessment of Value for Money (VFM) and impact, the study is
intended to be forward-looking and seeks to learn lessons to support future WFD programming and political
governance programming by DFID and other bilateral and multilateral organisations more broadly.
