An independent Mid Term Evaluation of the Cities Alliance Liberia Country Programme, 2019

This Mid-Term Evaluation of the Comic Relief funded Liberia Country Programme was completed in 2019.

The independent evaluation confirmed that the design of the programme is to a large extent effective. The evaluation identified emerging systemic results, including generating shifts in perceptions of the role of the city in the economy; an increased recognition of slum dwellers as citizens; strengthened municipalities who are increasingly engaging citizens; and informal settlements ‘being put on the map’.

The evaluation recognised that addressing the challenges facing informal communities necessitates comprehensive multi-sectoral and multi stakeholder approaches.

The Management Response to the Evaluation included responses and actions to address the recommendations from the Cities Alliance and Partners.
