Project: Towards Collaborative and Transparent Local Development Planning
Evaluation Date: December 2015
Report: [report link]
Lesson Learned:

The project avoided the political dimension of decentralization, although its consideration would have been important to ensure relevance over time. While the project helped local areas to move towards a decentralized governance system, steps remain to be taken to institute genuine decentralization – particularly the election of local officials and adequate transfer of resources. Therefore the inclusion of an advocacy component would have greatly strengthened the programme.
