Project development and evaluation

NFDS has vast experience in project development and evaluation and has in many cases assisted in crisis management to re-structure and design development projects so that they achieve success.

Implementing projects is made so much easier if a project has been well designed, with a sound logic that links activities to expect results/outputs and these to the project purpose. Sadly, too often projects are not well designed, little consideration of the risks and assumptions that form the project environment is a common error as well as weak project logic. This results in project activities, even if very successful in isolation, not contributing to the overall purpose that the project set out to achieve. NFDS offers services in this area, including, for example, technical advice, project design, project evaluations, institutional reviews, project portfolio reviews and re-structuring of project design.
