ICARDA commissioned a mid-term evaluation (MTE) of the Strengthening Knowledge Management for Greater Development Effectiveness in the Near East, North Africa, Central Asia, and Europe (SKiM) project which is funded by the International Fund for Agricultural Development (IFAD). The main objectives of the evaluation are to: (i) appraise the activities and outputs achieved by ICARDA and partners, (ii) identify and assess outcomes of the project, (iii) identify the enablers and/or constraints to the attainment of project results and lessons learned, and (iv) make practical recommendations for corrective action required to achieve the envisioned project results within the remaining period of the project. The evaluation is based on a review of project-related documents, remote interviews, and discussions with various key stakeholders, including beneficiaries and the SKiM project implementation team.A report is a separately published record of research findings, research still in progress, policy developments and events, or other technical findings, usually bearing a report number and sometimes a grant number assigned by the funding agency. Also, an official record of the activities of a committee or corporate entity, the proceedings of a government body, or an investigation by an agency, whether published or private, usually archived or submitted to a higher authority, voluntarily or under mandate. In a more general sense, any formal account of facts or information elated to a specific event or phenomenon, sometimes given at regular intervals. Source: COAR
