    Independent Review of ARC Contingency Planning Processes and Design and Implementation of a Monitoring and Evaluation Framework

    Kimetrica conducted an independent review of the African Risk Capacity (ARC) contingency planning process and provided strategic recommendations to strengthen the current M&E system. A second consultancy was commissioned to implement the recommendations provided to ARC. The services performed included the provision of advisory services on ARC's log frame, and the design and implementation of a process audit and spot checks for the monitoring of ARC's first pay-outs in Mauritania, Niger and Senegal. In addition, Kimetrica developed training materials on ARC contingency planning and how to conduct process audits and spot checks for monitoring of future payouts.

    Impact Evaluations: Data Management and Integration & Field Based Training and Support

    As a response to preventable threats posed by poor sanitation and hygiene, the World Bank’s Water and Sanitation Programme (WSP) implemented a Scaling Up Handwashing Behaviour Change and Sanitation Programme in six countries.  The major component of the project was to reduce the incidence of disease.   Kimetrica implemented the programme’s impact evaluation in four countries:  India; Peru; Senegal; and Vietnam.  The evaluation, which was based on formal quantitative surveys, documented the health impacts and relevant project costs of WSP interventions. To measure impacts, the evaluation implemented randomised, controlled trials using household surveys to capture key outcome indicators. Kimetrica's survey and software experts provided data capture software and training in household survey enumeration, data capture and quality control to local survey firms in the four project countries. The development of data capture software, including web-based reports, provided both quality control and survey coordination.  The final impact evaluation data was used by the World Bank to measure the impact of its investment and inform follow-on programmes.

    Increasing Smallholder Production through Structured Demand in TB, HIV/AIDS Treatment and OVC Programmes: Feasibility and Impact Analysis

    With the significant expansion of HIV/AIDS, TB and OVC programmes in Africa, there is both an urgent need to meet the demand for expanding programmes and, at the same time, address the increased food security and nutritional needs of programme clients.  Under a contract with UNAIDS, Kimetrica conducted a study on the feasibility and potential impact on smallholder incomes of market opportunities for supplying food to support antiretroviral therapy (ART) and Tuberculosis (TB) treatment programmes and Orphans and Vulnerable Children (OVC) services in Africa.  Kimetrica conducted case studies in six African countries to gain insight and practical knowledge of the potential benefits, costs, risks and constraints of investing in smallholder supply chains for donor-funded health and social protection programmes. In addition, Kimetrica's staff mapped potential partners in 20 African countries, ranging from NGOs to farmer groups to health facilities that can manage procurement of food between small farmers and social protection programmes.  The study’s findings were used to develop programmes to support smallholder production and to provide nutritional support to HIV/AIDS, TB and OVC beneficiaries.
