The evaluation assignments will be of six-week duration.

The in-country evaluation missions are scheduled to take place in Ghana from March 19-30 2007, and for Kenya from April 9-20th and in Lebanon and Yemen in April (TBD: visits will take place in parallel with each team member in-country in Lebanon or Yemen for a two week duration) upon completion of the field visits, there will be two weeks for drafting and one week for finalizing the evaluation report in the evaluator's home country.
