Sida has supported rural development in Macedonia through two programs, the Integrated Rural Development Programme (ALKA) and the Albania Macedonia People's Empowerment Programme (AMPEP) with approximately 25 MSEK. The programmes have been aimed at capacity building on local level, promoting good governance and implement local infrastructure projects. The aim of the evaluation has been to assess and reach a deeper understanding of achievements, the process of learning and evolvement of approaches and methods in the programmes of value both for the agencies involved, other practitioners, scholars and policy makers in Macedonia and internationally.
