In this time-frame the second Cooperation MOU was executed in which the civil society of Barcelonea played an important role.
The city to city cooperation between the two cities resulted, among others, in projects that focused on establishing municipal archives & libraries, urban planning & reform, and waste management. The projects were realized thanks to the collaboration and coordination established with different and diverse actors (e.g. municipal experts, NGO's, universities).
The ex-post evaluation evaluated the criteria impact, sustainability, efficiency and effectiveness. The goals was to gain knowledge that can be applicable for future collaborations between Barcelona and Maputo as well as other cities.
