Training and radio programmes developed in Angola were the most effective project components, unquestionably raising awareness about the issues discussed. What remains unclear is their subsequent usefulness and the degree of ownership they inspired in the women involved. Also unclear is the extent to which the project tangibly contributed to greater equality between men and women political office-holding and, above all, to an improvement in the “quality” of their participation. There is no registry or procedure for evaluating or monitoring specific outcomes, which undoubtedly undermined project efficiency.
