The Voice for Change Partnership programme (V4CP) is a global programme that is implemented by 51 Civil Society Organisations (CSOs) in six countries with the support of the Dutch Ministry of Foreign Affairs, Embassies of the Kingdom of the Netherlands, the International Food Policy Research Institute (IFPRI) and SNV. Through the V4CP-programme SNV and IFPRI support approximately fifty CSOs to foster collaboration among relevant stakeholders, influence agenda setting and hold governments and private sector accountable for their policies. By collaboration with partners from different sectors (state, market and civil society and the interface between these three pillars) the CSOs that collaborate in the programme aim to contribute to improve the ‘enabling environment’ in which the interest of the communities that they represent are better served. The programme supports the CSOs through three intervention strategies: (a) capacity development trajectory; (b) evidence generation and dissemination; (c) support to design and implementation of advocacy plans.
After two years (2016 – 2017) of implementation, SNV, IFPRI and their partner organisations decided to organise a Midterm Review (MTR) of the programme in order to deepen insights into the relevance, efficiency and effectiveness of the programme and distil major learnings both at strategic and operational levels that can be applied to the remaining part of the programme implementation. The review was carried out by a team of three external consultants from Context, international cooperation (Utrecht, the Netherlands) and ACE Europe (Mechelen, Belgium).
