Lessons
Findings
Recommendations
1 PSGG should support a careful reflective consideration of the National Unity and Reconciliation Commissions (NURC) existing and possible new functions.
2 PSGG Capacity development support for the Ombudsman?s Office (OO) should focus on its principal function of mediating between citizens and the state and market.
3 PSGG capacity development in the future should go to supporting Media High Council?s (MHC) media freedom mandate, while letting MHC use its own funds to build additional capacity in the area of media regulation.
4 There is a need to ensure that the National Women?s Council (NWC) is focused on activities that deliver the results outlined in their results framework
5 The National Human Rights Commission (NHRC) should reflect and examine the effectiveness of its programmes. New areas that should be made a priority for next strategic plan period need to be carefully examined.
6 There is a need to ensure that the PMEP indicators are aligned to the National Policy and Result Matrix and Joint Governance Assessment Key Performing Indicators.
7 There is a need to ensure that the IPs are actually collecting data and information outlined in the PMEPs for the baseline ? most of this work should be completed in May 2010. In May 2011 a final survey should be undertaken to assess progress against the baseline.
8 Monitoring visits to the IP?s field programmes to view and assess financed activities should be undertaken
9 PSGG and each IP need to begin developing an exit strategy to cope with the ending of funding in April 2011.
