During the period under consideration, the general goals of the Moroccan Government were to improve the social and economic wellbeing of citizens and buttress Morocco’s position on the political scene and in the world economy. In this context, the African Development Bank financed structural reform programs (aimed at improving productivity, boosting private investment and efficient resource allocation), as well as investment projects in the infrastructure sector (notably in the transport, water & sanitation and energy sectors) and social sectors (health, rural development). Universalia conducted the evaluation of the AfDB’s strategies and programs in Morocco implemented over the period 2004-2013, which aimed to assess the Bank’s development results, as well as the factors of success and failure. It also sought to identify lessons to improve the future Country Strategy. The evaluation included a review of all 60 projects funded by the Bank during the period in eight sectors (i.e. agriculture, energy, finance, governance, industries-mines, social, transport, and water and sanitation), including a review of their theory of change and results framework. This involved conducting in-depth document review as well as field visits to projects sites. The evaluation also included an assessment of the Bank’s performance at the sector level.
