This evaluation was carried out by a team of Evaluation Dept (EvD) staff and independent consultants as part of a rolling programme of Country Programme Evaluations (CPEs). The programme of studies is intended to ensure compliance with DFID’s corporate accountability as well as contributing to wider lesson learning across the organisation and informing the development of future strategy at country and regional level. The team was led by Jeremy Clarke from EvD and was supported by Peter Landymore, Julian Gayfer (PARC) and Cecilia Luttrell (ODI). The process was managed by Kerstin Hinds, Iain Murray, Lynn Quinn and Karen Kiernan of EvD’s country programme team. The study focused on DFID’s programme during the period 2000-2006 and was carried out over the period October – December 2006. The structure of the evaluation is based on the CPE programme but was undertaken with fewer person weeks and limited (one week) period in country. It was carried out at the request of DFID Vietnam in order to draw out key lessons that could be fed into the preparation of the next CAP. However, the report covers much of the same ground as the standard CPE but has been modified to give more attention to the priorities of the country office. Chapter 9 of the report covers these specific issues and proposals. In accordance with EvD policy, considerable emphasis was placed on involving the country office staf
