Project: Strengthening Advocacy Capacity of Civil Society in The Gambia
Evaluation Date: December 2013
Report: [report link]
Lesson Learned:

External factors relating to the implementation by the government of civil society legislation limited the impact of joint dialogue between civil society and government in Gambia.  Those local government administrations, which have already responded to advocacy efforts by introducing new services, mostly do so by financing through local tax income. As these resources are scarce, they are usually insufficient to meet the local needs NGOs have identified.
