China human rights organization: Kaladan Movement Project External Evaluation Report
Chin Human Rights Organisation (CHRO) has realized the Kaladan Movement (2012-2015) funded by the Stefanus Alliance International (SAINT) together with its partner, the Arakan Rivers Network (ARN) and the Zo Indigenous Forum (ZIF). On the basis of experience in Burma to date, they share their concern about the possible human rights, socioeconomic and ecological impact of the Kaladan Multi-Modal Transport Transit program, which will connect the state of Mizoram with the Indian Ocean and cross the Burmese Chin and Arakan states by means of roads and rivers.
At the end of the ongoing Kaladan Movement in December 2015, SAINT decided, in collaboration with CHRO, to conduct an outside assessment of the work. The main effects and achievements of the Kaladan Movement are as follows. Identify weaknesses in the Kaladan Movement realization and recommend how the findings can be incorporated into further activities and organizational developments.
make a number of suggestions on the use of indicator and surveillance instruments that could be incorporated into the ongoing work of the Kaladan movement and the work of the Chin Human Rights Organisation in the wider sense. Methods chosen for the assessment are the following: a) process and stakeholder analysis, b) result-oriented reporting, focusing on the targets adopted, and c) key change, focusing on intentional and unpredictable results as seen by recipients and shareholders.
Evaluations are made on the basis of the Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development/Development Assistance Committee (OECD/DAC) rating criterions, i.e. relevance, efficiency, effectiveness, impact and sustainability. A rating grid was created that links special rating issues with information resources and stake holders. On the basis of this schedule, valuation instruments (e.g. policies for semi-structured surveys per type of stakeholder) were elaborated.
A participatory methodology-based assessment revealed that the work is highly relevant in relation to concept, conception and concept. They are networked and the emphasis on forming coalitions is important. It was also able to adjust to the delay in infrastructural work.
However, the projekt became a little CHRO-focused and leaned towards the Chin state, since the major partner could not afford any money for their work in Arakan and Mizoram. No appropriate logic frame or indicator was developed for the engineering of the projects, while objectives and results were not realistic. Evaluations revealed that CHRO is a Murmanese organization that was exiled under a decade of armed rule.
The owner and main emphasis is clearly Chin ("Burmese") and the organization is becoming more and more established in the state. The effect has been reached in the following areas: improving the capacities of members of the movement, expanding co-operation and networking, raising people' s consciousness, raising the profile of the general and main interest groups, government agencies under the pressures of civic organisations, and increasing pressures on businesses and government agencies.
In spite of some shortcomings, the assessment notes that the proposal has provided a sound foundation for effective interventions and proposes a number of suggestions, including: Emphasis on sustainable development and the involvement and development of sustainable development organisations during the remainder of the duration of the projects. Concentrate on the area north of Paletwa, where the potentially damaging connection to Mizoram will be realised.
The movement should try to obtain extra funds for further involvement in Kaladan. It also contains advice on supervision and assessment. Organization Comments: And we found the outside assessment very useful. This was not a completely logically-based system at the beginning of the program, as neither Digni nor Stefanusallisen had a consistent system for it.
In this regard, the assessment was important as the system was enhanced by the assessment team.
