Mid-Term Evaluation EU NSA funded: “Strengthening Local Governance and Citizen Participation Project in Rural District Councils of Zimbabwe Project”

The Civic Forum on Housing (CFH) was formed in 1995 with the core mandate to foster positive communication, dialogue and consensus building involving civil society organizations and stakeholders for improved housing, service delivery and local economic development in rural and urban local authorities of Zimbabwe.

In April 2010, the CFH started the implementation of a five-year EU funded project under its Non-State Actors Call in Mutoko, Chipinge, Tsholotsho and Nyaminyami Rural Districts Councils of Zimbabwe. The main objective of the project is to promote democratic, effective, transparent and accountable local governance in Rural District Councils of Zimbabwe through Participatory Learning by Doing Approach. The project is now in the third year of its implementation and a Mid-Term Evaluation is needed to establish the current status and future focus of the project.
