Tom Alberts , Helen Guardado de del Cid
The objective of this evaluation is to examine the results of the Swedish support to the library sector in Central America 2002-2005. The support is given to National Libraries and ther Public Libraries in El Salvador, Guatemala, Honduras and Nicaragua and to regional capacity building to all seven countries in the region. The evaluators recommend Sida i a to carry out a regional survey of the situation of libraries and that there should be a sharper poverty focus if the Programme is continued. They also advocate that a possible continued Programme should be on a larger scale than the present.
