The consultancy provided a mechanism for dialogue with the projects that facilitated the compilation of lessons learned in the first two years of the ADELANTE Programme. This exercise not only allowed to systematise the lessons learned in the area of Triangular Cooperation, but it was also useful to adjust some of the Programme's management processes and tools based on joint reflections. In general, DEVCO's assessment of the projects and Technical Assistance of the ADELANTE Programme was very positive.
