Project: Appui à la participation politique et citoyenne de la femme dans le processus démocratique au Burundi
Evaluation Date: November 2011
Report: [report link]
Lesson Learned:

The project was closely linked to the 2010 electoral challenges in Burundi to encourage women to vote and to stand for election. The election process, with a mandatory quota of 30% female representatives within institutions, was an important lever to generate collective awareness among all these leaders and shapers of opinion. This project also went beyond the elections by suggesting the creation of a National Forum for dialogue, allowing women leaders to overcome political differences and to exchange ideas on priorities to be implemented in order to improve the living conditions of Burundian women.

Project: Increasing Women’s Participation in Politics and Decision Making in Angola
Evaluation Date: March 2013
Report: [report link]
Lesson Learned:

The project was implemented at an opportune time (2011-2012), coinciding with the run-up to the 2012 elections. It also aligned with the drafting of the National Gender Equality Policy (2013) as part of the Angolan Government priority action for equal participation for men and women. The project objective thus responded to the unmet needs and challenges of the Angolan context, especially in the provinces and at the local level.
