Final Evaluation Report
Frank Sullivan, Regina Apiyo, Samuel Mtoka, Fabian Musila
This is the final evaluation of Scaling up Conservation and Livelihood Efforts in Northern Tanzania (SCALE-TZ), a five-year, $9.2 million project aimed at conserving more than 55,000 square kilometers in a key region.
The area is home to about 240,000 people, predominantly pastoralists and agro-pastoralists.
The project has made progress toward many of its original goals: consolidating existing wildlife management areas (WMAs) and promoting the formation of new ones, undertaking watershed conservation activities and supporting improvements in gender and HIV/AIDS.
It faces considerable “work in progress” difficulties. Of five areas, two WMAs have serious leadership issues, one has a tenuous revenue stream, one was formed too quickly, and at least one WMA-in-formation has been judged too big to manage.
The report issued five recommendations, including continuing program elements, and adding some that were part of the original program design. It also encouraged the expansion of project actors through stronger sub-grant or fee-for- service mechanisms.
