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.

Empowering Urban Youth For Climate Action


Empowering Urban Youth For Climate Action

FoodWave is a European project involving 16 countries and a network of 28 partners. FoodWave aims to create a new alliance between institutions, civil society and young people for an inclusive and sustainable future for cities, focusing on the importance of sustainable food systems at the urban level and the adoption of responsible practices and lifestyles by youth for climate change mitigation.



The “Food Wave” project aims to increase the knowledge, awareness and engagement of young people between the ages of 15 and 35 on sustainable food consumption and production practices for the mitigation and adaptation to climate change.

The project involves the development of activities to raise awareness and involve public opinion through: the co-creation of information materials for the implementation of information and mobilization campaigns, actions to engage young people online and offline, training courses aimed at young activists, activities aimed at young people from peripheral urban neighbourhoods, micro-financing for small youth associations and organisations, development of online and offline discussion platforms, youth exchanges between the northern and southern countries of the world, creation of food influencer networks , a pan-European campaign across digital channels, European Union Film Festivals, high-level events, collaboration with existing youth participation initiatives and visual art competitions.

Young people from 16 different European nations pledge to change their food consumption habits and actively promote the shift towards urban food systems that are ecological and inclusive, recognizing the effort of the European Union in mitigating the change climate and contributing to it.

Our Activities

The final independent external evaluation of the FoodWave initiative is aimed at analysing the quantity and quality of results to support the project evaluation to be carried out by the European Commission. The analysis focuses on the progress of the activities and the level of achievement of the expected results, without neglecting the description of obstacles and possible mitigation and adaptation measures, so as to provide the commissioning body and the partners of the initiative, suggestions aimed at improving the implementation of the project, considering also some management aspects. A work plan is implemented that focuses on the participation of the stakeholders involved by stimulating useful reflection for the development of possible future designs. The evaluation exercise is designed following the “theory-based” approach, integrating the critical reconstruction of the plan with some insights aimed at enriching the understanding of the most relevant practices that emerged; the proposed method follows the DAC evaluation criteria to which is added, given the specificity of the project, the criterion of “European added value.”

To carry out the evaluation activities, in addition to document analysis, information is collected through the following survey methods:

  • Semi-structured interviews, in order to gather opinions, perceptions, information and data from partner organizations’ contact persons and key stakeholders, supplemented if necessary by group seminars/discussions in order to enhance group dynamics and related contributions;
  • On-line questionnaires in order to involve the widest possible number of stakeholders to gather qualitative elements;
  • Group seminars/discussions to gather “broad” and qualitative evaluative elements;
  • Visits to some project countries and participation in project-sponsored events.

Monitoring and evaluation of the projects funded within the call for proposal “Country Programs” in India, Sri Lanka and Ecuador


Monitoring and evaluation of the projects funded within the call for proposal Country Programs in India, Sri Lanka and Ecuador

The Country Programme in India, Sri Lanka and Ecuador was an initiative financed by Fondazione Cariplo and Fondazione Peppino Vismara. The programme aimed at promoting country-projects through local and transnational development actions. Within this framework, the monitoring and evaluation task was assigned to Fondazione PuntoSud, for the entire duration of the initiative (3 years).



Three projects were financed and implemented by the Italian NGOs FEM (to manage the action in India), ICEI (to manage the action in Sri Lanka) and ACRA (to manage the action in Ecuador).

The evaluation system was put in place to accompany the progresses, follow up the results achieved and to formulate appropriate guidance and elaborate lesson learnt targeting both implementers and donor agencies.

The three projects were similar in size and approach. All of them included an economic development dimension and the promotion of transitional link between the country of implementation and the respective community of migrants in Italy. Nevertheless, the three projects also presented important differences in term of sectors and method of implementation, pushing for the definition of a common evaluation framework and ad hoc, tailored, investigations.

  • In Ecuador the project “rimesse per lo sviluppo” (remittance for development, implemented by the Italian NGO ACRA) aimed at contributing to the economic and social growth of the Ecuadorian population through a better channelling of remittances toward development of small water and sanitation actions.
  • In India, the NGO FEM, was responsible for the project “Modelli microimprenditoriali e servizi per lo sviluppo socio-economico dei working poor” (microentrepreneurial models and service for the socio-economic development of the working poor) , intended to improve the living conditions of the working poor in India, through the development of micro-finance networks, innovative models of micro-entrepreneurial activities the link between the Punjab’s communities and migrant communities in Italy.
  • The project “Creazione di micro e piccole imprese multisettoriali in Sri Lanka” (Creation of micro and mall multisectoral enterprises in Sri Lanka) implemented by the Italian NGO ICEI”, was finally aimed to support a culture of dialogue and integration in Italy between the Italian and Sri Lankan citizens, activating micro and small enterprises in Sri Lanka in the agriculture, livestock and sustainable tourism sectors.
  • The M&E exercise implied the elaboration of a common monitoring and reporting system able to detect systematically the progress of project activities and produce the necessary information for periodic and overall assessment of the projects.
  • A critical support to the implementation process – to highlight and communicate to the donor agencies – was also ensured through constant feedbacks and follow up or recommendations.
  • Nine evaluation full reports were developed on the basis of studies conducted on the field by teams composed by PuntoSud staff and experts.
  • In addition, quarterly reports (18 in totals) were produced, containing a narrative and a financial section, to state the degree of progress of the three projects.

A special focus, finally, was given to investigate the co-development dimension of the program, more specifically to assess the degree to which the projects did succeed in valorise the role of migrants and their associations in supporting transnational development initiatives.

Inclusion and claiming the rights of people with disabilities


Inclusion and claiming the rights of people with disabilities

The PODER project aims to create and promote a path of employment inclusion, defense of the right to education and claiming the rights of people with disabilities in 4 municipalities in El Salvador



The statement “nothing about us without us” is the essential starting point of the project “PODER: program for occupational inclusion, the defense of the rights to education and the claim of the rights of people with disabilities”.

The project action, lasting 36 months, aims to strengthen and support tangible changes such as to allow people with disabilities in the target areas (Colon, Zaragoza, Santo Tomás and Santiago Texacuangos) to promote, as active subjects recognized as competent, processes of social and educational inclusion.

The proposed action develops around the idea of the centrality of people with disabilities and their organizations, whose strengthening in terms of awareness and skills (individual and collective empowerment) is considered as a fundamental precondition for achieving the established objective.

The project has three main components:

  • strengthening advocacy capacities of people with disabilities and their organisations
  • support for the completion of educational and professional training courses for people with disabilities
  • reduction of physical access barriers to schools and other buildings of public interest by means of light infrastructural upgrading works.

Independence and autonomy of people with disabilities in Gaza


Independence and autonomy of people with disabilities in Gaza

The final evaluation took place at the end of the project promoted by the NGO EducAid entitled Independence, Capability, Autonomy, inclusion – Center for Independent Life for Persons with Disabilities of the Gaza Strip (I-CAN). The project started its implementation phase in May 2018 and ended – with an extension – in March 2021 in Gaza.



The I-CAN project was dedicated to strengthening the independence and self-determination of people with disabilities (PWD), especially women with disabilities, primarily through the establishment of an integrated and innovative Centre in cooperation with local organisations. The Centre is today the hub for improving the autonomy of the PWDs through the provision of personalised individual and group services. The Centre, in particular, has the characteristic of involving, as operators/women, staff with disabilities, proposing “in fact” a model of real contrast to stereotypes and strongly marked by the protagonism of the PWD in the target territory.

The evaluation work was carried out as follows.

  • First, we worked to develop a critical analysis of the project path, taking care to build the logic of the intervention on the basis of the real potential and external constraints that emerged from the start. This analysis allowed to define the evolution of the reference framework presented at the initial stage (relevance of the intervention) and to analyses the progress of the project (through the monitoring documents and some interviews addressed to the actors involved in the activities (efficiency of the intervention).
  • Secondly, have been investigated the economic, social and institutional factors that can ensure the implementation of the planned service activities (setting out the minimum standards of success with EducAid in the framework of the OECD DAC criteria).
  • Thirdly, a quantitative study was organized, questionnaires have been administered to the users of the Centre and to teachers who received training. This demanding work has allowed us to work on a specific data source that strictly oriented to assess the effectiveness, sustainability and impact of the project.  During the data processing data, documentations, results achieved and perceptions of key informants have been triangulated and evidences have been discussed with the project team to complete the analysis.

Evaluation of the IFRC ECHO Coordination process


Evaluation of the Red Cross EU Office’s Members’ ECHO Coordination Process

The purpose of this evaluation study was to assess how the ECHO coordination process has affected the Red Cross EU Office’s Members joint approach towards DG ECHO. The evaluation focused on conducting an analysis to provide EUNSs and IFRC with knowledge and evidence on how Red Cross (EUNSs and IFRC) could further develop their strategic partnership to DG ECHO.



The evaluation was planned to capture effectively lessons learnt and provide information on the effect, the achievements and the existing gaps in the coordination procedures and tools. The overall purpose was to learn how to improve the effectiveness of what EUNSs and IFRC do and the tools they use.

In addition, the evaluation took into consideration the important aspect of the alignment between Red Cross priorities, expertise and geographical presence with DG ECHO set of annual priorities guiding the allocation of funding to DG ECHO partners.

The evaluation ensured both a geographical and sectoral coverage, considering the specific areas of intervention of the 14 members of the EU Coordination Office.

The Evaluation exercise was conducted following four main research areas:

  • To explore if whether and how the implementation of Red Cross internal ECHO coordination procedures and tools has affected the funding allocated by ECHO to EUNSs and IFRC.
  • To explore how the Red Cross priorities and expertise in terms of type of crisis and sectors align with DG ECHO priority sectors, geographical focus, type of crisis and areas of intervention.
  • To identify if the coordination process put in place has helped shaping the strategic relationship between ECHO and Red Cross partners.
  • To analyse if the coordination procedures and tools have enhanced the collaboration between Red Cross EU Office members (EUNS and IFRC).

Surgical and trauma health response in Sierra Leone


Surgical and trauma health response in Sierra Leone

EMERGENCY is working in Sierra Leone since 2001 with a Surgical Centre designed for war victims, then extended to the care of orthopaedic patients and all surgical emergencies.



In order to better fulfil the gaps identified in the health sector, EMERGENCY aimed at increasing trained staff at district level in general surgery, trauma stabilization and safety referral. Shortage of qualified professional health staff and weak capacities in training institutions are identified as key challenging in the health sector in Sierra Leone.

Therefore, thanks to the EU Delegation to Sierra Leone contribution, the project ‘Strengthening surgical and trauma health response in two most affected areas by Ebola in Sierra Leone: Port Loko and Western Area’ started in 2015 with the overall objective to contribute to the surgical and trauma health response in affected Ebola areas: Port Loko district (Lokomasama), Kissy (Waterloo Refuge Camp) and Goderich.

For this reason the activities implemented aimed at increasing access to surgical – trauma services in Port Loko, Kissy and Goderich and at guarantee capacity building for national medical staff and CHWs.

In fact, a core point of the intervention is strong inclusive factor together with a double approach: addressing the immediate needs, while keeping considering longer term needs and issues a joint emergency and development approach.
