PURPOSE AND OBJECTIVES OF THE EVALUATION

The Management Committee of the SUN Movement MPTF agreed to use funds available against Window III to commission an evaluation of the MPTF to take place in the second half of 2015. The evaluation will provide the Management Committee of the SUN Movement MPTF and the Transition Stewardship Team of the SUN Movement with findings, recommendations and fund design options that are expected to assist in identifying the best course of action for the future.

The purpose of the evaluation will cover two distinct dimensions:

  • Assessing the current SUN Movement MPTF. Assess whether the current SUN Movement MPTF has met its objective in supporting any of the four strategic objectives11 of the SUN Movement. It will consider the value added by the SUN Movement MPTF and will capture its major achievements, challenges, institutional knowledge, experiences, and lessons learned by the various stakeholders involved in the operation of the SUN Movement MPTF since its inception.
  • Forward looking at the need for catalytic last resort fund. By focusing on the areas requiring financial support to contribute to the objectives of the SUN Movement (2016-2020), consider future needs for a catalytic last resort fund to support national multi-stakeholder platforms during the next phase of the SUN Movement. These areas for support shall be identified in the revised Strategy of the SUN Movement and Roadmap that will be developed during the same period

The objectives of the evaluation are:

1. Assessing the current SUN Movement MPTF

  • To determine the extent to which the SUN Movement MPTF funds are proving catalytic for actions to scale up nutrition in-country, with specific attention on the contribution of the SUN Civil Society Alliances.
  • To assess the validity of the SUN Movement MPTF Theory of Change and Logframe and the extent to which the SUN Movement MPTF has contributed to the changes identified in its Theory of Change and Logframe and to improved alignment of projects funded under the three Windows.
  • To ascertain what extent the SUN Movement MPTF was (or has been) the most appropriate financing architecture in providing catalytic and last resort grants to SUN Movement.
  • To ascertain the opportunities and limitations that the current MPTF legal arrangement and governance mechanism has had in supporting the development and implementation of actions for scaling up nutrition and to understand how it compares to alternative sources of financing.

2. Forward looking of the need for catalytic last resort fund

  • Based on elements coming from the revised SUN Movement Strategy consider future needs for a catalytic last resort fund during the next phase of the SUN Movement and propose possible support measures (Windows) in line with the revised strategy.
  • If a similar fund will be considered needed, present several different funding design options based on the analysis of existing systems.

Look at alternative monitoring systems that can capture and evaluate more broadly the different functions, roles and effects and assess the different needs of all stakeholders involved. Consider the need for a strengthened monitoring and evaluation framework for any future pooled funding mechanism.
