Baser, H., Morgan, P., Zinke, J., Bolger, J., Gaspers, J., Hasse, O., Hauck, V. and S. Tascherau. 2007. Evaluation of the Strategic Gap Filling Programme of the Commonwealth Secretariat
In early 2004, the Commonwealth Secretariat commissioned an evaluation of the effectiveness of its Programme 4.4: Technical Assistance for Strategic Gap Filling (SGF).
This report responds to that commission over six chapters. The first chapter provides the background to the evaluation and describes the methodology, while also outlining the issues driving the evaluation. The analysis of issues is undertaken over the next four chapters, which are divided chronologically into
the past (chapter 2), the present (in two parts, chapters 3 and 4) and the future (chapter 5). Chapter 5 also looks at the options for structuring Strategic Gap Filling and, finally, chapter 6 recaps the recommendations of previous chapters and provides some concluding thoughts.
