This evaluation was unusual as it was completed by two members of staff who had worked on the programmes evaluated. We have been surprised that evaluations carried about by staff are often more critical that independent evaluations and this is one example. The evaluation found that although the programme had been successful overall in building the capacity of staff in partners, the general persisting weakness of the civil society sector overall had limited the impact of this. It recommended that we should focus our work more on incountry campaigns than on regional events which is something that we have since taken up, that we should create more opportunities for partners to input at international fora, should mainsteam gender more completely and ensure that MRG has a better institutional memory so that staff are not reinventing wheels and share learning more consistently across programmes.
