Abstract: The 2007 evaluations with end users of the Global Teenager (Education) and ECAMIC (Livelihoods) projects of IICD and with participants of capacity development activities show that project users highly appreciate the services that the projects provide and the training that they received. In terms of impact, most respondents have reported an increased sense of empowerment. At the organizational level, respondents have reported making meaningful technical contributions to the work of their organizations through solving technical problems and thereby reducing the dependency of their institutes on external technical experts. Users have also reported increased economic impact as they are now motivated to work harder while some see greater opportunities for advancement of their businesses. However, participants to trainings have reported limited say in decision-making processes in their organizations several months after their training, which may affect their motivation in the long run.
