Project: Supporting local democratic governance in the mining regions of northern Upper Guinea
Evaluation Date: September 2016
Report: [report link]
Lesson Learned:

The project established Reflection Circles on the topics of civic participation and consultation. These Circles were one of the project’s strong points. The Reflection Circles provided a link between the citizens and the municipal authorities and enhanced public debate on issues of local interest. Each Circle was led by a facilitator and applied a dynamic, participative methodology focused on debate in order to organise an optimal and effective framework for learning, making it possible to identify and analyse situations and problems in the daily life of the communities.

Lesson Learned:

Participation of civil society actors and of local government representatives in the capacity-building sessions exceeded the targets set however, the project failed to really mobilize women.

Project: Strengthening the capacities of Magistrates
Evaluation Date: July 2011
Report: [report link]
Lesson Learned:

The project’s overall conceptual framework did not properly connect the goal of re-establishing citizens’ trust in justice in Niger with the actual activities carried out since the activities were focused only on the magistrates themselves and not the wider population or local or traditional leaders.
