This evaluation assesses what can be learned from the pilot phase that will both strengthen the CMC model and improve UNESCO’s programming for future CMCs, in particular through the scale-up initiative. It was conducted by the International Institute for Sustainable Development between April and October 2005.
An evaluation framework was approved by the UNESCO Internal Oversight Service. In addition to a review of CMC documentation, site visits were made to 13 CMCs in Mali, Benin, Mozambique, Tanzania, India, and Nepal. The remaining 26 CMCs were surveyed by telephone, with 11 responses. An additional 26 in person or phone interviews were conducted with UNESCO
stakeholders, donors, partners and peers active in the field of ICTs for development (ICT4D).
