Evaluation Budget(US $):

Relevance: The Lesotho Data Project was highly relevant to the need of Lesotho on data for development and result-based management.

Effectiveness: The Lesotho Data Project was moderately effective, primarily due to its ambitious scope and objectives not matched with time and resources available.

Efficiency: The Project’s efficiency was moderately unsatisfactory.

Sustainability: The sustainability of the Project is considered modest and is still a work in progress. Some of the aspects of the Project have potential (most likely) to be sustainable.

Partnerships: Although conceived as a multi-stakeholder initiative, the Project did not build on the foundation of the UNDP-EU partnership. Potential for partnerships with the private sector (in training) is evident but not tapped yet.

Cross-cutting issues: The Project did not mainstream gender; however, gender relevance is evident. The Project advocated disaggregated data to enable gender analysis.
