Training on Impact Evaluation for Evidence-Based Development

About the course

Development programs and policies are typically designed to create change to the target beneficiaries. Whether or not these changes are actually achieved is a crucial public policy question but one that is not often examined. Impact evaluation assesses the changes that can be attributed to a particular intervention, such as a project, program or policy, both the intended ones, as well as ideally the unintended ones.

Botswana Shoots Zim Stray Cattle

Botswana says it is shooting Zimbabwe cattle which stray across its border to protect its beef exports to the European Union (EU).

Zimbabwe farmers are furious and say that 400 healthy animals which crossed the unfenced border were shot by Botswana officials last month. But they're getting no sympathy from their own government.

Botswana says its exports to the EU are vitally important and it cannot risk any of its cattle contracting foot and mouth disease from Zimbabwe cattle.

​Farm Co-ownership Pilot Project in KZN

One of the first pilot projects that will see workers and farm owners become co-owners of a farming enterprise as part of government's 50/50 land policy was officially launched in KwaZulu-Natal.

The pilot project was unveiled at the Westcliffe Farm near Greytown outside Pietermaritzburg.

Former owner Andrew Braithwaite‚ who will now be co-owning a new farm called Khamanzi Farming Project‚ says land is a very emotional topic in South Africa “and we’ve been shown how not to deal with it by our northern neighbour” - in reference to Zimbabwe’s chaotic land reform system.
