Evaluation of the Matra Project Programme
In 2005, Berenschot conducted the evaluation of two sub-programmes of the Matra programme of the Dutch Ministry of Foreign Affairs: the Matra Project Programme (MPP) and the Small Embassy Projects programme (KAP).
Matra (an acronym referring to maatschappelijke transformatie or civil society transformation) is targeted at improving democratisation processes in Central and Eastern Europe. Berenschot assessed the effectiveness, efficiency, sustainability and relevance of Matra at the programme level while UNDP evaluated the effectiveness of the projects in 4 selected beneficiary countries. The final report was submitted to the Dutch Parliament at the beginning of 2006. For more information on Matra, see the website of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs.
