Abstract
    The evaluators found that Phase II of the Flanders UNESCO Science Trust Fund (FUST) has been largelysuccessful both at individual program level and collectively. Overall, individual programs have been wellmanaged and highly effective. All of the programs managed to achieve their desired results, deliver theexpected outcome, and contribute to capacity building within their respective mandates. The evolution ofthese programs during phase II is consistent both with UNESCO’s mandate and with the strategic goalsof the Government of Flanders Science and Innovation Policy. More specifically, phase II can becharacterized by marked increases in regional scientific cooperation, strong involvement by Flemishcounterparts, significant gains in regional and country-level capacity through training, and by the initiationand completion of many applied research projects. The program has been highly effective and it isaccurate to say that the financial and scientific contributions of the Flemish community are well directedand visible.The reviewers believe that the success and the continuing evolution of the programs warrant thecontinuation of the current agreement.
