Final Evaluation of COMPASIS Joint Project

COMPASIS was designed to address the underlying causes that led to the 2006-2008 conflict, involving a multi-sectoral approach to rural development, encompassing support to livelihoods, agriculture, infrastructure, water, sanitation and hygiene. Apart from direct delivery of food and other inputs, the project also promoted community mobilization activities through group savings and loans, and a range of other mechanisms intended to empower communities. The joint project was implemented by 6 UN agencies (UNDP, UNICEF, WFP, FAO, ILO, and UNFPA), working in close collaboration with their counterpart government agencies, implementing activities in 17 villages (sucos) in 2 remote districts, Ermera and Oecusse.

There were two interrelated objectives: 1) To reduce extreme poverty among vulnerable groups through community mobilization, agro-based micro-enterprises, skills training and post-training support; 2) To promote social inclusion in the service delivery system. The focus of the final evaluation was on analyzing the impact of the project, using both quantitative and qualitative methods to determine the extent to which the project was able to increase the level of community empowerment and reduce the level of extreme poverty. The assignment included an in-country evaluation mission in Timor-Leste between June 3 and 25, 2013.
