This external evaluation intended to reflect on and provide input for adjustment of the approach of CBI – the centre for the promotion of imports from developing countries. Its main purpose was therefore to determine a series of lessons and recommendations for the future. It covered three regional Integrated Programmes (IPs) that were implemented in 2012-2018 and dealt with agro-food products and food ingredients in Central America, East Africa and Southeast Asia.
The evaluation was carried out in collaboration with the Royal Tropical Institute. For the evaluation, interviews were held in Honduras, Indonesia and Uganda.
