Report on the evaluation of UNFPA assistance to population education projects executed by the ILO in Nepal: NEP/74/PO1--population education in the organised sector and NEP/77/PO2--population education through panchayats, cooperatives and training institutions (November 1982).
New York, New York, United Nations Fund for Population Activities [UNFPA], 1983 Dec. vi, 61,  p.2 projects financed by the the United Nations Fund for Population Activities (UNFPA) and implemented by the Nepalese Government with the International Labor Organization (ILO) as the executing agency are reviewed. The projects are assessed, conclusions drawn and recommendations made in terms of the achievement of the country level project objectives, training and educational activities undertaken, and information education and communication (IEC) materials produced for population education projects, the to which projects have been integrated into relevant country level programs and into Maternal-Child health/Family Planning (MCH/FP) programs, the strategies used and the impact on the various target populations. Part I deals in general with the immediate objectives of the projects; part II goes into more detail on project plans, implementation and achievements. The basis of the Population Education in the Organization Sector project was the development of worker motivators who would promote family planning. The overall plan was for seminars to arouse awareness, support and commitment at the national level, regional seminars for local managements, regional tripartite and plant bipartite committees to develop and sustain local awareness, to encourage practical management support at the local level. The project was carried out successfully in terms of the original plan and work schedules. However, there were deficiencies in the original project design (e.g., combining the industrial sector, the cooperative sector and women under 1 project); objectives were not well formulated and little attention was paid to them after the project started. Review and evaluation aspects of the management of the project were neglected and follow-up was thus deleteriously affected. Recommendations focus on attempts to consolidate and institutionalize the achievements of the project. The target groups of the 2nd project were the leaders and officers in the Department of Cooperatives and in the Ministry of Panchayat and Local Development, the members of cooperative societies and community leaders. The project was designed to contribute to the implementation of the national population program by institutionalizing the provision of population education on a continuing basis to rural families through the work-related training network of the named organizations. For the most part, the objectives for the cooperative sector have been met: a significant number of cooperative officers are more aware of population issues and population education is part of the staff's regular curriculum. Many quantitative targets were met. However, some of the qualitative aspects of activities could be improved and the commitment to the population education program by the Cooperative Department must be translated into manpower and budgetary allocations that will provide the necessary means for continued activity.
Report of the evaluation of UNFPA assistance to population education projects executed by the ILO in India: IND/74/PO7, IND/78/PO6, IND/78/PO7 and IND/79/P12 (February 1983).
New York, New York, United Nations Fund for Population Activities [UNFPA], 1983 Dec. vii, 82,  p.Independent, in-depth evaluations at the United Nations Fund for Population Activities (UNFPA) are undertaken to provide timely, analytical information for decision-making within UNFPA and to provide one of the inputs that enable the Executive Director to meet the requirements of accountability to the Governing Council. The main focus of this report is on conclusions and recommendations. Part I summarizes the main conclusions and recommendations which are addressed primarily to UNFPA and the executing agency. Part II goes into more datail on the projects being evaluated and the conclusions and recommendations are addressed primarily to the government and the executing agency. The evaluation covers 4 population education projects in India. It is part of a comprehensive evaluation study of selected population education projects executed by the International Labour Organization (ILO) in the Asia and Pacific Region. The 1st project reviewed, Population Education in the Organized Sector, is mainly concerned with the development of prototype training and information, education and communication (IEC) materials for use in the organized sector, the adaptation of these materials into regional languages for distribution, and in motivational/training activities for the organized sector. The 2nd project concerns cooperation of management and workers in population education and welfare activities in the industrial sector. It is designed to enlist the participation of a greater number of employers in providing family planning education, motivation and services to their workers and their families. The 3rd project shares the same service orientation, focuses on the industrial sector and is designed to enlist the participation of employers in the provision of family planning education, motivation and services for their workers and their families. Finally, the 4th project evaluated is the Tripartite Collaboration for Promotion of Family Welfare Activities in the Organized sector. Its principal aim is to provide family welfare education to textile workers and their families. Its major assumption is that the key role in persuading workers to accept family planning services is played by the union. These projects are assessed, conclusions drawn, and recommendations made in terms of the institutionalization and integration of population education programs with other relevant programs, achievement of population education objectives, training activities, including curricula and IEC materials, and impact upon target audiences. The methodology for the evaluation and the reporting procedures are included in an appendix.
