The Expert Group for Aid Studies (EBA) hereby invites proposals for an evaluation of Sweden’s implementation of the Addis Ababa Action Agenda. The overarching question is whether the Swedish commitment to the Agenda has been transformed into coherent government policies in relevant policy areas, with a specific focus on development cooperation.

Purpose and evaluation questions

The purpose of the evaluation is to investigate if and how the Addis Agenda has been implemented by Sweden. The evaluation focuses on how the Swedish commitment has been transformed into policy in general, and how sector-specific policy has been implemented in Sweden’s development cooperation.

The evaluation is intented to provide knowledge of how Sweden has implemented the international commitment, which can contribute to the Government’s continued work with the Addis Agenda, as well as other international commitments.

The evaluation should also assess the extent to which Swedish implementation, approximately halfway to the 2030 deadline, can be assumed to sufficiently contribute to the ambitions in the Addis Agenda. To meet the purpose of the evaluation, two evaluation questions have been formulated:
1) To what extent has the Swedish Government implemented the Addis Agenda in relevant policy areas?
2) How has the Addis Agenda been implemented in Swedish development cooperation policy?

The maximum cost for this evaluation is SEK 1 400 000 excl. VAT.

Last day to submit tender is 5 September 2022.
