The main users of this evaluation are Country governments, DFATD, DFID, Nutrition International staff, and Nutrition International Board of Directors.

- Assess and examine the extent to which and how NI’s organizational structure, planning and programme delivery contributed to results (outputs and outcomes);
- Assess and examine the extent to which and how NI’s activities considered and contributed to gender equality results; and
- Identify gap areas in programming, and provide findings, conclusions, lessons, and recommendations to strengthen NI programming, coordination and collaboration in countries where NI works, as well as inform future project design and implementation.
