Impact Evaluation of the Tunisian Rural and Agricultural Chains of Employment Program (TRACE)
Description of project
The Government of Tunisia has been financed by this grant managed by the World Bank to implement the TRACE program "Tunisian Rural and Agricultural Chain of Employment". TRACE program is envisaged in the field of agriculture to improve Tunisian agricultural sector competitiveness and stimulate employment creation, especially for youth and women and has strong complementarity with the existing programs financed by the WBG, regarding Agriculture and Job creation.
- Work-framing on TRACE results to adapt the TRACE indicators to the Tunisian context and develop an effective and efficient measurement methodology for each of the indicators.
- Baseline situation to define and analyze the socio-economic governorates and beneficiaries' situations within the agricultural and agri-food sector (Qualitative and quantitative manners).
- Mid-term evaluation to define and evaluate the first results of TRACE, with possible adjustments and difficulties encountered.
- Final evaluation to measure and confirm the impact of TRACE program.
The baseline study involved the collection of qualitative and quantitative data from beneficiaries who have been selected to take part in the TRACE program. To obtain data from the beneficiaries, a questionnaire was designed to collect specific indicator-related information. The questionnaire was updated and refined to address the interests of the different types of beneficiaries (for example, individual entrepreneur or SME or POs). The data collection process for the baseline study will continue as further beneficiaries are selected by the operators over the course of 2022 and 2024.
