Impact case study: Influencing government industrial policy and supporting improvements to DFID programming in Rwanda
The Supporting Economic Transformation (SET) programme has been working in Rwanda since 2016. The primary focus of the work has been supporting the evolution of government policy towards a coherent approach to economic transformation. Policy research and engagement carried out with this aim has contributed to a gradual but perceptible improvement in the quality of policy thinking despite some notable counter-currents. This work has spun off secondary benefits in terms of stimulation and guidance to DFID governance and growth advisers, DFID partners and the local private sector.
Impact case study: Supporting Tanzania’s Five-Year Development Plan (FYDP II) 2016/17-2021/22
The Supporting Economic Transformation (SET) programme helped to inform and design Tanzania’s Second Five-Year Development Plan (FYDP II) 2016/17-2020/21 and continues to guide prioritisation and strategic thinking around the country’s economic transformation. The programme also directly supported the preparation of an Implementation Strategy (IS) for the FYDP II, ensuring it was underpinned by relevant principles and factors to achieve successful implementation. SET was also influential in motivating the formation of a monitoring and evaluation (M&E) framework to track progress and demonstrate results.
