Lessons
Findings
Recommendations
1

Design. To define indicators in the project design, great care must be taken so that they are compliant and measurable. One way to minimize this problem is by conducting extensive consultations with expert institutions on the identified issues during project development.

2

Design. The design of projects must pay close attention to the extent to which the territorial assets of the central subjects with whom they work are relevant and sufficient. This is so that the interventions can generate a staggered aggregation of benefits that supports progress towards the objective and towards obtaining global environmental benefits

3

3. Execution.  Projects working at various spatial levels must develop criteria and methodologies that allow them to identify the way in which the conservation object(s) are expressed at different scales, in order to identify them and incorporate them into the interventions and to be able to generate global benefits in a staggered manner, from the most local territorial levels, towards the most aggregated levels

4

4. Reverse migration processes (city - countryside) should be seriously considered in the design of projects aimed at rural and peasant areas, in order to incorporate new visions and types of roles among local beneficiaries

5

5. Design. The new projects should include from their design the realization of studies that make a comparison between the beginning and end situation. In addition, they should provide an understanding of both the causes of the initial situation, as well as the changes introduced and the keys to such changes

6

6. Execution.  Projects with a strong operational character and wide areas of intervention must have sufficient technical teams on site from the beginning of the project and with the necessary implementation capabilities. These must achieve the replicability and scalability of the intervention models developed.

7

7. M&E System. For complex projects such as CMS, it is recommended that an M&E person be assigned to design a system that not only defines procedures for monitoring outputs and activities, but also develops an M&E plan that defines a set of indicators and results that are specific to each level of the project and directly related to the overall project results.

8

8: Achievement of Results. The design of GEF projects should always include a community organization development component, so that they contribute to strengthening these organizations in their technical and management capacities.

9

9. Achievement of Results. The Ministry of Environment must promote an articulation with the Ministries, services and municipalities involved in the different IETs to establish mechanisms that respond to the interest of different communities in order to continue advancing and support them in a process that leads to the “graduation” of these, to continue their route more autonomously.

10

10. Differences and Similarities between CMS, FPA and SGP. The differential and aggregate impact on the issues of agency/ownership, community work and organizational development, which generate the longest duration of the projects; the higher financial amounts, the participation of users in the definition of the issues to be addressed in the projects; and the sustained and close technical support throughout the development of the project should be studied

11

11. Gender and indigenous peoples. It is suggested that any studies conducted be quickly transformed into concrete actions that address the needs of these groups.

12

12. Gender and indigenous peoples. Early studies on the needs and potential of these groups are suggested to develop a strategy to effectively incorporate them into project activities.
