Lessons
Findings
Recommendations
1

The Project's dialogue processes have allowed the construction of networks of strategic partners and the mapping of other initiatives (national or international) in execution, that act or could act synergistically, with international cooperation projects. It is suggested that exchange activities be included with other national initiatives and international organizations (triangular cooperation) for the execution of a Project in the area of biodiversity. For that, UNDP's support and international expertise would expand the articulation with other initiatives in biodiversity

2

Monitoring, together with ABC, of the implementation of the Project Exit Plan prepared by the ICMBio, in the next 12 months, with a meeting every 06 months with ICMBio.

The project is on the last year, UNDP team is supporting the ICMBIO team on the next steps considering the phase out or extension possibilities. The issue of knowledge sharing will be included on the discussions
