The purpose of this report is to record and analyze (evaluate) the accomplishments of the South Africa– Canada Program on Governance (PoG) and the lessons learned in the course of its operation from its origin in 1992 through to the end of 1997. This is part of a larger report that also suggested a framework for future review and evaluation. This chapter introduces the PoG and describes its mode of operation and goals. The next three chapters provide an overview of the three periods of PoG’s operations, with some details about its accomplishments and lessons learned. Chapter 5 then documents the results of the interviews with South African and Canadian participants, stakeholders, and observers.
