Project Description

In 2015 Democracy International conducted a final performance evaluation of the Local Governance Decentralization Program (LOGODEP) funded by USAID and implemented by Management Systems International (MSI) in Ghana’s Western Region. The primary objectives of the evaluation were to learn to what extent the activity’s objectives and goals have been achieved, explore how effectively the activity was implemented, understand how the activities were perceived and valued by beneficiaries and other stakeholders, and identify lessons and best practices that can inform the design of future programming. LOGODEP was established to support USAID/Ghana’s Strategic Objective 5: “Strengthened Democratic and Decentralized Governance through Civic Involvement.” It sought to increase the capacity of local government institutions to plan for development, increase internally generated funds, and increase the participation of citizens to effectively engage their local officials. The program had three intermediate results (or components): (1) Public participation in local government expanded; (2) Integrated development planning to increase Internally Generated Funds (IGF) achieved; (3) Linkages to Local Governance initiatives at the national level strengthened.
