Project: Am I Equal in Kosovo Society?
Evaluation Date: July 2018
Report: [report link]
Lesson Learned:

When attempting to introduce or change perceptions of previously controversial and/or ‘taboo’ topics, organizations should highly consider the use of radio and TV in order to remove these concepts from social marginalization/isolation and encourage public debate on these topics.

Theme: Media
Project: Promoting the representation of Malagasy Women in Political and Public Affairs
Evaluation Date: February 2015
Report: [report link]
Lesson Learned:

The project’s impact on the public opinion in Madagascar was more fragmented, since media coverage was not very targeted and the journalists themselves displayed a lack of capacity and knowledge in terms of gender issues. It would be necessary to review the content of messages aimed, in order to present women’s participation and the inclusion of gender issues in politics not as a divisive act but rather as a social project aimed at increasing equality, enhancing the well-being of citizens, and above all applying the rule of law. These messages should be pushed by journalists who were trained in this area and should focus on the added value of women’s experiences and even more simply on their necessary contribution to the democratic debate.

Theme: Women's empowerment
Project: Women in Politics in Mozambique
Evaluation Date: December 2011
Report: [report link]
Lesson Learned:

Project efficiency was undermined by the weak integration of management among the project partner organizations, and the limited organizational and managerial capacities of the provincial implementing agencies. There were also major human resource challenges which were not addressed satisfactorily. For these reasons and others, the deployment of human and financial resources was not always optimal in supporting the achievement of results.

Theme: Women's empowerment
Project: Human Rights Education for the Police
Evaluation Date: May 2012
Report: [report link]
Lesson Learned:

Although the line authority for higher education in Kazakhstan did not veto the objectives nor the timeline for activities during the project’s initial consultations, whether human rights training will become a mandatory discipline for Kazakhstan’s police academies was still vague at the time of the evaluation. The grantee should have maintained an ongoing communication and coordination with the Ministry of Education to secure its approval.

Theme: Rule of law
