Evaluation of FDCH Program Results 2011 – 2014

This report presents the results of an evaluation study that access the outputs and outcomes of the Timor-Leste FDCH (‘Fundo de Desenvolvimento de Capital Humano’) for the first four years of its implementation (2011 – 2014). Based on a mixed-method approach that combines quantitative and qualitative data collected directly from beneficiaries and participating institutions, the study answers the question: ‘Is the FDCH improving the quality of Timorese human resources in strategic sectors?’ To do so, it considers training and courses that have been funded and completed by the end of 2014 so that benefits can be accrued and observed in 2015.

Based on an analysis of the data collected, the study draws conclusions around the relevance, results and management of FDCH activities in 2011-14.

Human Resouces Mapping

The objective of this report is to support FDCH in identifying future funding priorities so that funds can be allocated to areas of critical need, where the greatest amount of skills limitations persist; and simultaneously be able to foster equitable distribution of skills among government ministries and institutions for a balanced growth.

The objectives were as follows at the outset of the study:

  1. Conduct a Human Resource Mapping Activity to identify future funding priorities for the FDCH at the national and Municipal level for both public and private sector;
  2. Identify the number of people requiring training by FDCH in priorities areas per municipality/district; and
  3. Recommendations on ongoing data need to report the number of people to be trained.
