IJRAAT —Investing in a Joint procedure-Ready and compliant Approach to the Application of EU PRAG rules through Training

Valutazione dei bisogni formativi, progettazione e realizzazione di un programma di formazione per le ONG locali, le ONG siriane ibride registrate all’estero e le ONG internazionali non familiari con la gestione dei finanziamenti della DG NEAR.



La collaborazione con la Delegazione dell’UE in Siria è iniziata nel 2022. Il programma si prefissava, innanzitutto, di individuare i bisogni formativi delle ONG locali, delle ONG siriane ibride registrate all’estero e delle ONG internazionali con limitata familiarità rispetto alla gestione dei finanziamenti della DG NEAR. Successivamente, ha incluso la progettazione e la realizzazione di un programma di formazione il cui obiettivo consisteva nel contribuire all’aumento dell’efficienza e dell’efficacia delle azioni finanziate dall’UE attraverso il miglioramento della conoscenza dello staff delle organizzazioni rispetto alle norme ad esse applicabili.

Le nostre attività principali:

  • Valutazione dei bisogni formativi
  • Sviluppo di un corso sulle regole PRAG rilevanti per la gestione finanziaria dei finanziamenti UE
  • Realizzazione di tre sessioni di formazione di cui, due corsi virtuali di 2 giorni ciascuno e 1 corso in aula di 2 giorni a Gaziantep per un totale di 85 partecipanti.

Specialised training programme for AICS staff


Specialised training programme for AICS staff

Training programme for AICS staff based in field offices on the management of delegated cooperation projects, the use of PRAG for awarding contracts and grants to third parties and the RBM approach



In 2019, a collaboration began with the AICS office in Rome to deliver in-person training in Tunis to some representatives of the field offices with the aim of familiarising them with delegated cooperation. The main purpose of this training programme was to provide AICS staff with the necessary information and practical tools to properly submit applications for EU funding and manage EU-funded programmes in accordance with the rules of the Contribution Agreement. Subsequently, starting in 2020, similar programmes were delivered in virtual classroom mode for some of the AICS field offices. The aim of these trainings was to provide a clear framework on both the general rules of implementation of delegated cooperation projects and the use of the PRAG for the award of service, works and supply contracts and grants (Grants). Finally, in 2022, at the request of the AICS office in Maputo, a course on the new RBM approach adopted by AICS was developed and delivered.

Our activities:

  • Development of an ad hoc course on the management of delegated cooperation projects on the basis of EU rules and the AICS itself
  • Delivery of a 3-day in-person training session in Tunis for 70 representatives of the AICS foreign offices
  • Delivery of a course in virtual classroom mode on the management of delegated cooperation projects for the AICS office in Khartoum
  • Delivery of two courses on the use of PRAG for the awarding/management of supply/service/works contracts and grants to third parties
  • Delivery of four training sessions in virtual classroom mode for AICS offices in Maputo and Yangon on PRAGs
  • Development and delivery of a virtual classroom course on the Result-Based Management (RBM) approach

Development of an agriculture resilient to climate change in Nepal


Development of an agriculture resilient to climate change in Nepal

The project, funded by AICS, aimed to improve sustainable agriculture in Sindhuli, Kavrepalanchok, and Sindhupalckokin, in Nepal post-2015 earthquake. It included the establishment of production cooperatives and the promotion of climate-friendly techniques, for the benefit of farmers’ increased production and income. PuntoSud managed financial assistance for pilot projects as part of the strategy.



The project supported the agricultural activities in the Nepalese Districts of Sindhuli, Kavrepalanchok, and Sindhupalckokin, in the aftermath of the 2015 earthquake. Commencing in March 2017 and spanning 24 months, the project was funded by the Italian Agency for Development Cooperation and was coordinated by ASIA. It involved PuntoSud, Istituto OIKOS and the Nepalese organization CEAPRED.

Primarily, the project aimed to enhance the sustainable agricultural production practices, in the three districts, by adopting an inclusive approach to foster market-oriented food security. It endeavoured to produce higher quality food with reduced reliance on natural resources and chemical inputs, while simultaneously increasing producers’ incomes through certified production systems.

The outcomes achieved include the following:

  • Establishment of a Participatory Guarantee System (PGS) for vegetables and vegetable seed chains, involving farmers and private companies.
  • Creation of 140 production cooperatives involving 2,250 members, of whom 50% are women, with an estimated 30% increase in production per unit area.
  • Promotion and adoption of sustainable, climate-friendly techniques by 1,500 farmers, with direct financial support to 20 small pilot actions, and dissemination of good practices among private and institutional stakeholders.

Our activities:

As part of the project strategy, PuntoSud developed a financial assistance programme for small pilot projects. Together with the project partners, it defined the selection and management criteria for the projects and took care of their internal support and monitoring.

Foundations for Africa – Burkina Faso


Foundations for Africa – Burkina Faso

Foundations for Africa Burkina Faso, supported by 28 Italian bank foundations and in cooperation with 7 NGOs, was launched in 2014 to improve the living conditions of the rural population, focusing in particular on food security and economic development and on the involvement of the Burkinabé diaspora in Italy in territorial cooperation activities with their country of origin.



Foundations for Africa Burkina Faso is an initiative supported by 28 Italian banking foundations, coordinated by ACRI, and launched in 2014 with initiatives both in Italy and in Burkina Faso. Thanks to the involvement of 7 Italian NGOs, the initiative focused on 7 regions of the country with the overall objective of contributing to the full achievement of the right to adequate food, improving the living conditions of the rural Burkinabé population and supporting the country’s poverty strategy paper.

In particular, the initiative aimed to promote:

  • The socio-economic sustainability of 5 agricultural and 2 forestry sectors and the capacity building of family farmers and their associations;
  • The role that the Burkinabé diaspora can play in Italy in transnational development initiatives between Italy and Burkina Faso;
  • The action of networks that are active and include decentralised cooperation initiatives in Italy and Burkina Faso through exchange, the dissemination of innovative methodologies and the joint allocation of resources to finance actions related to the initiative.

Despite the political challenges, the programme has adapted over its three years to maximise its impact and learn from the outcomes for future projects. The partnership between Italian banking foundations and local NGOs reflects a collaborative and multi-sectoral approach to addressing development challenges in Burkina Faso, aiming for a lasting and inclusive impact on the communities involved.

Our activities:

Monitoring and final programme evaluation were contracted to PuntoSud to provide critical support and improve project management. These services included the development and updating of theories of change, field missions and the drafting of mid-term and final evaluations.

Med Dialogue for Rights and Equality II – Civil society facility South


Dialogo nel Mediterraneo per i diritti e l’eguaglianza II – Iniziativa di supporto della società civile del Sud

The project aims to strengthen civil society in the Southern Neighbourhood countries through improved leadership skills, structured EU-CSO dialogue, and the capacities of DG NEAR and EU Delegations. The activities involve the beneficiaries in the design and implementation of different support measures to ensure sustainability.



The project– part of a new phase of the Civil Society Facility for the Southern Neighbourhood – adopts an integrated approach involving other programmes and instruments supporting civil society organisations.
In order to support an inclusive, participatory, empowered civil society and democratic space in Southern Neighbourhood countries, the project seeks to improve the skills of civil society leaders, support EU-CSO structured dialogue processes, and improve the DG NEAR HQ’s and EU Delegations’ capacities to work with civil society. A more empowered and dynamic civil society sector – along with higher levels of dialogue between EU and CSOs – will contribute to more inclusive, pluralistic, accountable and participatory democracies in the Sothern Neighbourhood countries.
The project Strategic Approach is based on the following strategic principles defined to secure achievement of the project results:

  • Supporting a coherent region-wide approach towards civil society in the Southern Neighbourhood
  • Implementing a Problem Driven Iterative Adaptation (PDIA) approach
  • Creating an enabling environment for policy change
  • Delivering prompt and well-organised deployment of technical expertise across multiple policy fields to support dialogues
  • Promoting gender mainstreaming approaches
  • Implementing an integrated and mutually reinforcing approach towards awareness-raising
  • Stimulating the active engagement of the target beneficiaries.

The activities are implemented in full partnership with the target beneficiaries in the design and implementation of Technical Assistance measures (through collaborative workshops, peer networks, training-of-trainers programmes, mentoring schemes, working groups, etc.). The transfer of a range of knowledge products (e.g. studies, good practice compendiums), tools and guidelines will further ensure that the project measures are internalised, owned and shared in a way that will guarantee sustainability.

Our activities:
PuntoSud will contribute to the implementation with some selected non-key expertise

Evaluation of DGCS-MAE Initiatives in the Health Sector in Mozambique


Evaluation of DGCS-MAE Initiatives in the Health Sector in Mozambique

La valutazione è stata finalizzata all’analisi di alcuni progetti finanziati dal Governo italiano in Mozambico fra il 2006 e il 2011, a supporto dello sviluppo dei sistemi sanitari locali e delle risorse umane. La valutazione ha esaminato l‘efficienza ed efficacia dei progetti, coinvolgendo esperti settoriali per valutare l’impatto e la sostenibilità rispetto alle istituzioni locali coinvolte.



The evaluation main objective was to produce a comprehensive analysis of the following projects financed by the Italian Government in support of the health sector in Mozambique and implemented in the period 2006 – 2011:

  • Sviluppo dei sistemi sanitari locali – Iniziativa di appoggio al Piano di Formazione accelerata dei tecnici sanitari nella provincia di Sofala
  • Partecipazione italiana al finanziamento e alla gestione del programma settoriale del Governo Mozambicano per il settore sanitario PROSAUDE
  • Sostegno allo sviluppo delle risorse umane nel settore sanitario
  • Formazione di medici in Mozambico – Programma di supporto alla Facoltà di Medicina dell’Università Cattolica del Mozambico

Three of the four projects have been implemented directly by the Directorate General of Cooperation and Development of the Italian Ministry for Foreign Affairs (MAE), while one was implemented by the Italian NGO Medici con l’Africa CUAMM.

More specifically, the evaluation exercise aimed to investigate the programme efficiency and effectiveness of the four projects, taking into consideration the DAC criteria and the indications provided by the contracting agency. The appropriateness of the MAE strategy was also taken into consideration in the identification of the recommendations that were provided at the end of the evaluation exercise.

In line with the PuntoSud methodology, the evaluation exercise analysed the project logic and the deviation from the original plan (highlighting changes, and their causes), analysed stakeholder and the project management.

The evaluation exercise included a field survey conducted by three sectoral experts to assess the information collected in Italy and to identify the impact and sustainability of the projects with regard of the local institutions involved (Ministry of Health, Directorate of Health in the two target provinces of Maputo and Beira, the Catholic University of Beira – Faculty of Health Sciences, Training Centres of Maputo and Nhamatanda).

NOPLANETB, the “L’infastruttura” for territorial sustainability


NOPLANETB, the L’infastruttura for territorial sustainability

NOPLANETB, the L’infastruttura for territorial sustainability, aims to enhance the experience of NOPLANETB, one of the operational areas of PuntoSud, and outline a renewed value proposition to define and test a model of territorial sustainability capable of strengthening internal expertise and providing a new development to the entire organizational and legal framework of PuntoSud, in line with its inherent inclination toward innovation and social and environmental responsibility.



The main objective of the project is to establish NOPLANETB as the infrastructure for territorial sustainability within a renewed organizational, policy, and legal framework of PuntoSud, aimed at consolidating its social responsibility. The validation of a renewed value proposition, focusing on programming and territorial sustainability and enriched by a prototype of action, is considered crucial for diversifying and innovating NOPLANETB’s offerings and its rebranded image. Only when these two elements come together can NOPLANETB’s value proposition be recognized as innovative in the field of ecological transition by various stakeholders and shareholders (civil society organizations, for-profit businesses, public institutions, etc.), and serve as an engine for the organization.

The shared identification of objectives and expected results has allowed, together with the selected consultants (see partners), the definition of the implementation methods of the intervention, characterized by some common elements across the three actions:

  • Enhancing the existing skills within the NOPLANETB (and PuntoSud) team and strengthening them through training and coaching;
  • Identifying shared solutions: renewing the brand identity of NOPLANETB and enriching the offering with the development of new models for project design and territorial sustainability, which will lead to the new positioning of NOPLANETB;
  • Implementing and realizing the identified solutions: using the new brand identity materials, testing the prototype of the new value proposition of NOPLANETB, the renewed organizational structure of PuntoSud, and the adoption of concrete social responsibility measures.

Mindchangers: Regions and youth for Planet and People


Mindchangers: Regions and youth for Planet and People

MINDCHANGERS is a European project involving institutions and associations from 6 European regions to discuss Agenda 2030, climate change and migration. Through calls for projects implemented by Local Authorities and CSOs and an innovative pan-European campaign, young people are involved through active citizenship actions and their engagement on global challenges and core values is strengthened.



Independent external evaluation – in itinere and final – of the MINDCHANGERS initiative aimed at analysing the quantity and quality of results, in order to facilitate the implementation of the project and support the evaluation of activities and results to be carried out by the European Commission.

The analysis requested focuses on the progress of the activities and the level of achievement of the expected results, without neglecting the description of obstacles and of the mitigation and adaptation measures adopted, in order to provide the commissioning body (and the partners of the initiative) with suggestions aimed at improving the implementation of the project and the possible elaboration of future projects.

For the realisation of the evaluation activities, in addition to the documentary analysis, information is collected through the following survey methods:

  • Semi-structured interviews, in order to collect opinions, perceptions, information and data from the contact persons of the partner organisations and the main stakeholders (and/or key informants), supplemented if necessary by seminars/group discussions with the same stakeholders, in order to be able to enhance group dynamics and their contributions.
  • On-line questionnaires, in order to involve as many stakeholders as possible to gather qualitative elements;
  • Seminars/group discussions to gather ‘broad’ and qualitative evaluation elements (e.g. lessons learnt, impacts and sustainability of the initiative, spheres of influence and case studies etc.).

We repair objects, we recreate relationships. At the school of circular economies at Lab Barona


We repair objects, we recreate relationships. At the school of circular economies at Lab Barona

In 2022-23, the 4th and 5th classes of the Capponi primary school and the 1st of the Gramsci middle school, are involved in educational activities and workshops at school and at the Lab Barona Repair Cafè with the aim of contributing to increase knowledge and awareness among pupils on the importance of environmental sustainability in everyday life. In particular, teachers and students will work on the theme of the circular economy



Starting from the circular economy, the project promotes attention to the new life of objects, through re-use and repair. The project will also be an opportunity to socialize and exchange experiences, to clash the disposable culture, to promote the good practice of reuse and therefore reduce the amount of waste produced.

The project works closely with the Lab Barona Repair Cafè, a space located in via Ettore Ponti 15, a few meters from the Capponi and Gramsci schools, launched in 2021 by La Cordata with the aim of offering the neighborhood a space where objects can be repaired, materials can be recycled giving new life to objects and at the same time a place for the exchange of skills, relationships and opportunities to create solidarity and mutual aid. With the project we want to strengthen the bond started with the neighborhood and create a new channel of collaboration with the surrounding schools in order to raise awareness and activate the inhabitants on circular economy issues. In this sense, the identified target, young students between the ages of 9 and 12, could be a driving force for the involvement of parents and potential new users of the Lab Barona Repair Cafè who will be able, even at the end of the project, to continue to have a place that in the neighborhood offers the possibility to repair, recycle, reuse.

Objectives to be achieved:

The project aims to increase the knowledge and awareness of primary and secondary school students on the importance of environmental sustainability in everyday life to clash the ongoing climate and environmental crisis and promote understanding of their role as protagonists of the ecological transition.

In particular:

  1. The project intends to increase the knowledge and skills of teachers and pupils of the Capponi primary school and Gramsci lower secondary school on issues related to environmental sustainability, in particular on the concept of circular economy, reuse and recycling.
  2. The project intends to promote the activation of pupils and teachers also with the involvement of the educational community to identify concrete solutions for daily actions that respect the environment.

To achieve the objectives, the three main activities are: teacher training, student training and laboratory activities. On the sidelines there is the activation of the “educating community” or the network of organizations and associations of the territory and in particular of the most peripheral part of the Barona district, which are informed, involved and activated to support the laboratory activities
