Lessons
Findings
Recommendations
1

The Project managed to produce a set of valued training programs and public awareness products on the Rio Conventions.  It is recommended to develop a dissemination plan for those public awareness and outreach tools as well as for the training manuals developed to ensure that future initiatives would build on the Project activities and results and will incorporate the project’s products in its work. (UNDP, DoE).

2

The training materials developed by the project should be shared with all concerned agencies as soon as possible, including piloting the testing of the local sustainable livelihood initiatives in the Hakaluka Haor, that would help in disseminating knowledge and lessons learned from these two valuable project’s activities.

3

The work to enhancing the capacity of relevant policy and institutional stakeholders to enable compliance with the three Rio Conventions and other MEAs Bangladesh has just begun through this Project. It still at the early stages hence other UNDP and Government of Bangladesh initiatives and projects should continue working on the upgrading of the national capacity, the infrastructure, and project’s deliverables produced to ensure that the Country will build on the Project’s Objective and results. A second phase of the project is certainly needed (DoE, UNDP, development partners, and donor agencies).

Agreed. Most of the training modules, public awareness materials and knowledge products have been published. Some of the materials are still in press and will be published by October 2019. The Department of Environment (DoE) will upload important training modules, knowledge products and awareness materials on their websites. The DoE and UNDP will jointly organize a dissemination workshop by November 2019. Moreover, important training modules and knowledge products will be sent to the relevant Ministries, line agencies, training institutions and other key stakeholders.
