Evaluation of the USAID-MMAF Marine Resources Program (MRP), Indonesia

An evaluation of USAID/Indonesia’s Marine Resources Program was undertaken between January-March 2013 by a team of three independent contractors assisted by three USAID Washington staff.

The purpose of the performance evaluation was to provide USAID/Indonesia and the Ministry of Marine Affairs and Fisheries (MMAF) with an independent review of progress to date of assistance provided by USAID to MMAF under the Marine Resources Program (MRP) and to guide the development of innovations and adaptation of USAID’s assistance in a dynamic environment. The evaluation will be used in the short-term by USAID and MMAF to modify ongoing assistance, and in the longer-term to plan future assistance strategy as part of USAID Indonesia’s Country Strategy 2014-2019. 

The MRP evaluation was conducted at three inter-related levels:

  • Level 1 – individual projects (outputs achieved)
  • Level 2 – MRP component (results achieved)  
  • Level 3 – overall MRP (strategic approaches)
