The Cooperative Venture for Capacity Building (CVCB) was established in 2001 to enhance capacity building in Australia’s rural industries. The first phase of the CVCB ended in 2007 and Hassall & Associates were commissioned to evaluate the program in order to:
• Determine the impact of the CVCB on key target audiences
• Recommend measures to improve the efficiency, effectiveness and appropriateness of CVCB’s investments in delivering benefits to it stakeholders.
The evaluation involved document review and stakeholder consultation against a tailored program logic which encapsulated the CVCB’s outcomes and activities.
