Solomon Islands NGO Partnership Agreement (SINPA): Final Evaluation Report
Summary of publication
The purpose of the SINPA Evaluation was to:
- provide an independent assessment of the success and challenges of the SINPA program and demonstrate the accountability of Australian Aid, and
- contribute to broader learning among SINPA stakeholders and inform future programming.
SINPA was a A$22.6 million program that aimed to support Solomon Islanders, in particular women and young people, to improve their own health, wellbeing and livelihoods. It was initiated in 2009, and ended in January 2016. SINPA comprised of five non-government organisations (NGOs) working in partnership with each other, local Solomon Islands NGOs and DFAT, to identify, test and learn from contextually appropriate development models. The program supported a diverse set of well targeted interventions that addressed women's economic empowerment, improved livelihoods for remote communities, inclusive natural resource management, gender based violence, vocational learning and skills training, and youth leadership and empowerment.
