Summary of publication
The Fiji Community Development Program (FCDP) was a five-year program (2012-2017) representing an investment of $21 million. It was implemented in two phases, with a Mid-Term Review carried out in November 2014.
An end of program evaluation of the FCDP was undertaken to assess the program's impact against its two main objectives: to mitigate social and economic hardship faced by poor, vulnerable and excluded communities in Fiji by funding the community development work of civil society organisations (CSOs); and to strengthen CSO capacity to deliver relevant and efficient programs in these targeted communities. The evaluation contains lessons for DFAT's future work with civil society in Fiji.
