The MDRP closed in June 2009, after seven years of operation in the Great Lakes region of Africa. The Program demobilized close to 300,000 combatants and supported the reintegration of 232,000 ex-combatants. Read the evaluations below for information on results and lessons.
End of Program Evaluations
The MDRP Final Report (July 2010) provides a detailed overview about the genesis of the program, its design features, and its objectives, and analyses the results achieved against stated indicators in each of the seven countries supported by the program. The report also draws a few lessons and implications for future DDR programs. MDRP Secretariat staff produced the report.
An independent evaluation of the MDRP was also carried out by a team of consultants. This was a requirement included in the legal agreements with MDRP donors. The review was carried out between March and October 2009 and the report published in June 2010. The World Bank management team prepared this response to the Independent Evaluation.
