months: 3
year: 2016
location: Vietnam
client: Spanish Agency for International Development Cooperation (AECID)

The Project Integration of Gender Equality in Decent Work Legislation and policies in Vietnam was a three-year ODA project implemented by Ministry of Labor, Invalids and Social Affairs and funded by Spanish Agency for International Development Cooperation (AECID) from 2013 to 2015. The  Project aims to integrate  gender  equality  into development and implementation of decent  work legislation, policies and programmes and support the implementation  of  strategic  priorities  in  the  Socio  Economic  Development  Plan  of  Vietnam towards 2020 and the international commitments in labor and social affairs that Vietnam participates in.

DEPOCEN was selected to conduct the final evaluation when the Project had been completed.The objective of the assignment is to assess the achievements of the project  both at output and outcome level with special focus on the impact of the project in  gender equality integration when  developing legislations on labour  and  social  issues  in  general  and  decent  work  in  particular;  as  well  as  to  assess  its relevance  and  sustainability  and  specific  recommendations  for  possible  further  initiatives that build on this project’s results.

Although the Final Evaluation covers the whole project lifetime, the evaluation team put the focus  on  the  evaluation  of  the  second  phase  of  the  project  taking  as  a  baseline  the recommendations from the Mid-Term Review.

The team took an appreciative audit approach to evaluate the Project as a whole, following the nine (09) major evaluation  criteria: relevance,  effectiveness, efficiency,  impact,  coherence,  ownership,  participation,  harmonization  and  sustainability  of the project with special focus on the second phase of the project (after the Mind-term review). In addition, the evaluation process and the analysis of the results was guided by the Gender Theory and Theory of Change.  A series of interviews and meetings with about 60 participants who are implementing partners, beneficiaries and relevant programs/donors were conducted between 7 February and 10 March 2016 in Hanoi. A presentation of the evaluation findings was delivered at the workshop of the Project Steering Committee and relevant donors. The final evaluation was highly appreciated by the project management unit, MOLISA and AECID, and particularly, has great value to draw lessons for future projects by MOLISA.
