ECOPER entrepreneurship project report published

Better entrepreneurship policies can increase the number of businesses created and enlarged, and therefore contribute to the economic goals inserted into global development agendas and national strategies. Reflecting this, UNCTAD implemented the project ‘Support Developing Country Policy Makers in the Formulation of National Entrepreneurship Policies through the Implementation of Entrepreneurship Policy Frameworks’ between 2015 and 2017. This year, ECOPER conducted the external evaluation of the project, and the final report has recently been published by UNCTAD.

The report contains findings on the project, which aimed to enhance policymakers’ capacities in the design and implementation of entrepreneurship policies in Cameroon, Ecuador, the Dominican Republic, El Salvador, The Gambia, and Tanzania. It contains recommendations for UNCTAD which could be applied during future entrepreneurship support activities. Further information is available on the project and its evaluation in the summary provided here.
