Dominican Republic Tri-Project Evaluation
The DR Tri-Project aimed at providing an integrated evaluation of the three USAID/Dominican Republic funded projects: (1) the DR Caribbean Free Trade Agreement Implementation Project (DR-CAFTA IP); (2} the Rural Economic Diversification Project (USAID/RED); and (3) 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.In partnership with AMEX International, DevTech conducted a formative evaluation of three USAID economic growth projects in the Dominican Republic (DR). The DR Tri Project Evaluation evaluated the: (i)Dominican Republic Caribbean Free Trade Agreement Implementation Program (DR-CAFTA IP); (ii) Rural Economic Diversification (USAID/RED); (iii) Dominican Sustainable Tourism Alliance Program (DSTA) The project also produced an integrated evaluation of the collective effects of all three programs.
