The strategy for 2016-19: “Partnership for Democratisation – mobilising people for democracy and a just distribution of resources” established our overall expected outcomes for the periodTo influence decision making in favour of just distribution of power and resources is at the core of NPA’s strategy.

As the strategy period is coming to an end and a new strategic period is in the planning process, NPA wishes to evaluate one of its core strategic objectives; “Civil Society Organisations influence political decision making”. The purpose of the evaluation is to learn from the work NPA has engaged in supporting partners’ work to influence political decision-making. The main issue to be addressed by the evaluation is:
