The purpose of this project was to evaluate USAIDs’ 3 years programme launched in 2012. This project aimed to empower civil society organizations with information and communication technology (ICT) for civic education, networking and policy advocacy.
In January, 2012, USAID/Cambodia’s Office of Democracy and Governance commissioned an assessment of social media and ICT usage to inform discussion about future project designs. Development Alternatives, Inc. (DAI) won the three-year award for the Development Innovations project.
The purpose of the evaluation was to assess the workability of the development hypothesis, the implementing partner’s performance in achieving the results expected, as well as a clearer understanding of the obstacles encountered in implementation. The evaluation also captured lessons learned from Development Innovations, to inform decisions to be made for the remainder of the project as well as potential future USAID/Cambodia interventions in the ICT for Development sector. The evaluation helped USAID/Cambodia decide on a future course of action with regards to technology programming.
