    • EQ1: To what extent was the project implemented according to plan (in terms of quantity and quality of outputs)?
    • EQ2: Did the LRAP Project achieve its stated objective of improving land tenure security for increased investment in the agricultural sector? Why or why not?
  • Lead the evaluation team in the design of data collection tools.

Preferred:

  • Previous experience evaluating similar MCC projects.
