To conduct a performance evaluation for the Cambodia Countering Trafficking-in-Persons (CTIP) activity, make recommendations to improve the performance of CTIP in the remaining period, and provide lessons learned to USAID/Cambodia in designing and managing CTIP programs.
USAID/Cambodia Regional Mission awarded the CTIP Mid-term Evaluation contract to The Mitchell Group (TMG) to conduct the mid-term performance evaluation of Cambodia’s Countering Trafficking-in-Persons (CTIP) project.
The CTIP project focuses on addressing the root causes of trafficking, taking a preventative approach by offering diversified, climate-resilient livelihood pathways that reduce dependence on seasonal agriculture, educating vulnerable individuals on safe migration, and an emphasis on youth engagement and activism. The project leverages locally tailored solutions that respond to communities’ unique needs.
The Mitchell Group assembled a team of international evaluation experts in order to:
1) assess if prevention activities have contributed to increasing safe migration and/or sufficient livelihoods for targeted population to choose not to migrate,
2) assess any unintended consequences of prevention efforts,
3) provide actionable recommendations can be made in relation to prevention, and
4) to identify lessons learned for future program design and adaptations.
Successful completion of all deliverables including: Qualitative Data Collection, Key Informant Interviews, and Focus Group Discussions took place in Banteay Meanchey, Kampong Thom, Siem Reap, Svay Rieng, and Phnom Penh.
