PACER is a five year project between Oxfam GB and the 50/50 Group of Sierra Leone (a local women's NGO). It aims to support the government to reduce poverty and vulnerability by promoting the equal participation of women and men in the planning, implementation, monitoring and evaluation of poverty reduction and development initiatives. The mid-term evaluation takes a participatory approach, aiming for reflection and common learning amongst those involved in the project. The rationale is to obtain perspectives on impact and lessons learned, in addition to assessing what has worked, what has not, and why. Resulting recommendations will then feed into the process of developing strategies for the remaining part of the project.
