External evaluation confirms successful collaborations with the private sector in Getting Down to Business programme

An external evaluation of the Getting Down to Business programme, that took place from July 2017 up to July 2019, was carried out by consultancy firm ACE Europe. The evaluation concluded that SCL has been very successful in setting up collaborations with the private sector in different supply chains, working with different approaches tailored to that specific context. The evaluation team also applauds the creative and innovative strategies of SCL in identifying unusual leverage points such as through working with associations of tenants or working with teacher unions. Furthermore the evaluation applauds the use of politically smart and evidence-based L&A strategies, balancing between a confrontational and collaborative approach, between inside and outside tracks, both in engaging with private sector as with government.
