GERMAN INSTITUTE FOR DEVELOPMENT EVALUATION/DEVAL: PROINTCAME EVALUATION
Global Partner: German Institute for Development Evaluation/DEval, Germany
Local Partner: German Federal Ministry for Economic Cooperation and Development (GIZ)
Background: After the signing of the peace accord in 2016 between the National Government of Colombia and delegates from the Revolutionary Armed Forces of Colombia (FARC), international programs were launched to increase levels of income and employment amongst the victims of conflict and to boost the local economy. New sources of income were introduced including agro-businesses in coffee, cocoa, livestock and dairy farming. Infrastructure and structural support for these sectors was provided to strengthen value chains and promote urban microbusinesses.
The GiZ implemented the pilot project PROINTCAME in 2018 to accelerate income growth and job creation. Its objective was to increase the income of the victim population, stimulating conditions that would allow the generation of new jobs, improve employability and strengthen grassroots organizations. Producer associations and microenterprises were targeted together with municipal employees in the departments of Meta and Caquetá
Purpose: The evaluation utilized the Inclusive Systemic Assessment for Gender equality, Environment and Marginalized voices (ISE4GEMs) as a methodology and was part of a broader strategic evaluation carried out by DEval in multiple countries
