Syria: Evaluation of the DFID Tamkeen programme

The Tamkeen programme is currently implemented by ASI and Integrity Research, and works in partnership with Syrian communities to deliver essential services and to foster open governance.

It enables communities to select and deliver projects focusing on rehabilitating service delivery and making communities resilient and self-sufficient.

The core of the Tamkeen process is that communities get the essential services that they need, as long as they go through an open, transparent process to identify and deliver them.

To date, the intervention has identified and engaged with 19 communities in opposition controlled and contested areas of Syria (in the Governorates of Aleppo, Idlib, Rural Damascus and Daraa).

Tamkeen Committees have been set up to identify local needs across a range of sectors and to help meet these needs by delivering services according to specific guidelines and rules.
