This evaluation is part of a larger study of the Global Partnership for Education that comprises 30 country level evaluations (CLE). The overall study runs from 2017 until 2020. It aims to assess (i) GPE contributions to strengthening national education systems and, ultimately, education results related to learning, equity, equality and inclusion; and hence (ii) the relevance, efficiency and effectiveness of GPE’s theory of change (ToC) and country-level operational model.
The assessment is based on a theory-based, mixed social science research methodology known as contribution analysis. This study was conducted between October 2019 and February 2020 and focuses on GPE support to the Republic of Tajikistan from 2012 to 2019. It draws on document, database and literature review, as well as on consultations with a total of 43 governmental, multilateral, bilateral, and non-governmental stakeholders in Tajikistan.
