Dominican Republic Tri-Project Evaluation
In partnership with AMEX International, DevTech conducted a formative evaluation of three USAID economic growth projects in the Dominican Republic (DR):
- The DR Caribbean Free Trade Agreement Implementation Project (DR-CAFTA IP);
- The Rural Economic Diversification Project (USAID/RED); and
- The Dominican Sustainable Tourism Alliance Project (USAID/DSTA).
These evaluations provided an overall assessment of the accomplishments and impact of the Mission’s Economic Growth program. In addition, each individual evaluation has served as a mid-term assessment of project implementation, measuring against targets and deliverables. This activity included an impact evaluation component that allowed USAID/DR and its implementing partners to make mid-course corrections and aided USAID/DR to assess how support to the Dominican economy has increased sustainable economic opportunities for the poor and has achieved improved conditions for a more competitive economy.
