Lessons
Findings
Recommendations
1
  1. Recruit externalised PMU and UGAP staff through a fast-track modality (not under the regular civil servant recruitment system)

It is necessary to revert to more mainstream approaches with an externalised PMU team fully dedicated to the project and avoid a mix of civil servants and external staff working alongside with similar responsibilities.

2

Redefine the chain of command for UGAP

It is recommended to review the chain of command at UGAP level and clarify the roles of PMU Coordinator and Island Delegates (or Coordinator): the PMU Coordinator is the technical supervisor feeding in tasks and activities to UGAP staff while the MAA Delegate and UGAP Coordinator (for Sal) are administrative supervisors, facilitating UGAP’s staff work through required official authorisations, supply of vehicles… in short, assisting logistics and official formalities

3

Redefine/reconfirm the roles of UGAP staff and other direct stakeholders for NIM modality

4

Balance better the PMU staff expertise between tourism and biodiversity

5

Increase subcontracting and avoid PMU stand-alone implementation

6

Improve project implementation through committees streamlining

7

Improve communication between stakeholders

8

Institutional lobbying to raise awareness on the added value of mainstreaming biodiversity into the tourism sector

9

Lack of horizontal articulation between MAA and MTT

10

Institutional lobbying to alter the focus of the SDTIBM and take into account sustainable tourism principles
