    MDG-F Case Study Evaluation

  • This evaluation is a knowledge-generating exercise whose goal is to: 1) Assess the MDG-F's contribution, at national level, to the achievement of the MDGs, the principles of the Paris Declaration and the UN reform initiative to “Deliver as One”; 2) Identify best practices and lessons learned in order to inform future joint programming for development; and 3) Connect local level programme interventions with national level policy-making processes by highlighting successful pilot initiatives with the potential for replication and scale-up.

Our Joint Programmes

Programme for the fight against gender-based violence through the empowerment of women and girls in Morocco
Over the past decade, Morocco has made significant strides in improving women's rights, including the ground-breaking passage of the 2004 Family Code, giving women greater protection and equality, and the 2008 ban on discrimination against women. But the country still struggles with high levels of gender-based violence: fully 60% of Moroccan women have experienced some form of violence and a quarter of them sexual violence in their lifetime. The Joint Programme was conceived to reduce gender-based violence against Morocco's women and girls by addressing the linkages between their poverty and their vulnerability.
Cultural Heritage and the Creative Industries as a Vehicle for Development in Morocco
Morocco possesses a rich and varied cultural heritage. However, while this heritage is a source of national pride, it remains undervalued and its development potential untapped. The aim of the Joint Programme was to strengthen the role of Morocco's cultural heritage and its creative industries within government policies and strategies relating to human development, poverty reduction and gender equity. As well as boosting local socio-economic development and sustainability, the programme sought to create a balance between preserving Morocco's cultural heritage and using it for the purpose of economic development.
