Assistance to Luxembourg in assessing its budget support to the Cabo Verde government
IDEA Europe was chosen by EY to assist the Luxembourg Ministry of Foreign Affairs and the LuxDev agency in evaluating its budget support to Cabo Verde.
Luxembourg is the European country that donates the highest percentage of its GDP to development aid and EY supports Luxembourg in the evaluations of many assistance programs. IDEA Europe’s expertise was used in the evaluation of the Budget Aid component of its development assistance to Cabo Verde. After a phase of remote documentary analysis, an on-site mission was carried out to meet the main actors and beneficiaries of this budget support, that aimed to improve the employment and employability of the most vulnerable populations in Cabo Verde. Apart from a meeting between a participant and a sea urchin, the mission went very well. The sea urchin has been tamed and the final report of this first mission for Luxembourg was presented to the Luxembourg Ministry of Foreign Affairs on September 26.
