Abstract This report provides the findings of the Ghana Country Evaluation and is produced as part of the overall CAPTURED End Evaluation. After five years of support by the CAPTURED project the University of Development Studies has been able to achieve commendable results. It can be confirmed that the content of CAPTURED curricula for both MPhil and PhD studies are well-drawn and suitable for the programs. The content and delivery of the CAPTURED programs are within expectation. A number of challenges have also been identified. One main challenge comes from an age-old culture where staff and students are influenced by the traditional educational system which has low regard of Indigenous Knowledge and practices with consequent preference for exogenous development. Another challenge is the observation that by mid-2012 there are not yet enough UDS professionals with the orientation and belief in ED. This will require additional support in the short term to bridge the period until PhD students have finalised their studies. The End Evaluation made 12 recommendations. The main recommendation is to decide on a clear UDS profile in terms of its Endogenous Development academic niche. Report number CDI-12-016.
