ICLD

Follow-ups

Follow-up and evaluation work is conducted on a yearly basis to ensure that the programmes develop in line with the experience gained and understanding developed during the training programmes. The most important part of the process involves determining whether the programmes have actually helped generate the preconditions for combatting poverty. We also examine whether the programmes have helped build durable networks that remain in place, even once the programme itself has come to an end. 

Change management work takes time. ICLD has extensive experience of conducting international development programmes that focus on local democracy, which enables us to build on lessons learned. We know, for example, that it is important to include both practical and theoretical elements in the programmes, and that development occurs on all levels – both organisationally and individually.
