Evaluation report of ITP Leadership in Local Governance

M. Johansson (2022)

This report is the last out of three (including baseline, a midterm-PM and this final report) in the work with on-going, learning evaluation in the programme Leadership in Local Governance 3 (below LLG3). The evaluation is made during the programme period December 2020-December 2021.

The overall goal of ICLD’s training programmes is to contribute to combating poverty in all its forms through the strengthening of local democracy. ICLD’s training programmes target decision-makers, representatives of the grass-root organisations and civil servants at the local level in low- and middle-income countries. The opportunity for the participants to learn from Swedish cutting edge skills, experience and methodologies in the field of local democracy development is what lies at the heart of the training programmes, and for participants to learn from one another.


Training programmes involve multiple local teams that each develop their own locally based change project that represents a puzzle piece in strengthening local democratic engagement. Through the project of change, each team is expected to impact their own organisation.
The specific objectives of LLG3 are participants’:

  • Gained skills and abilities to communicate and advocate on issues of inclusive governance;
  • Expanded local, regional, national and international network.
    Seven teams from four countries (Kenya, Namibia, South Africa and Zambia) participated.
