2017; DFID, FCO; Libya, Tunisia and Algeria
Itad has been contracted by the FCO-DFID North Africa Joint Unit to conduct a review of BBC Media Action in Libya, Tunisia and Algeria.
The UK Government has been funding projects with BBC Media Action in Libya, Tunisia and Algeria since 2012. Although project activities and planned outcomes differ they share a focus on developing media quality with engaging youth. This independent review has been commissioned with the purpose of assessing what has been achieved to date and how that compares across countries, and identifying key lessons and recommendations for future programming. Key review questions will focus on:
- The relevance of interventions in the media landscape of each country and wider context;
- Each country project’s progress against outputs and where possible evidence of contribution to outcomes;
- The extent to which conflict sensitivity and gender are addressed in programming;
- The quality of monitoring, evaluation and learning, including an assessment of theory of change and evidence;
- Reflections on the likely sustainability of interventions.
A two-person Itad team is conducting the review between September-December 2017. After an initial desk review, key informant interviews and consultations will be held in the UK, Tunisia and Algeria with Embassy programme staff, BBC Media Action project staff, implementing partners, key national counterparts and a sample of beneficiaries. A final review report will be presented to the North Africa Joint Unit in early December.
