Recommendations

Recommendation 1: In relation to future Project design to address some of the design issues encountered in the project, the TE recommends that UNDP consider the following in future project design:

 • Include a coherent overall design concept that links activities and targets with high level goals and aspirations that set the scene for project activities

• Include explicit provisions to address inclusion of women, youth and vulnerable people in project activities and outcomes, as well as reporting

• Include appropriate M&E provisions, including realistic indictors and targets that support clear reporting that, taken together, can be used to assist project management

• Incorporate flexibility and clear opportunities for stakeholder (i.e. participating country and territory) input into project management decisions

2

Recommendation 2: In relation to future Project implementation Where procurement is a significant component of the project design, the TE recommends that specific expertise (or resources) be assigned to this aspect of the project to ensure quality [fitness for purpose] and timeliness in the procurement of goods and services

3

Recommendation 3: On sustainability recognizing that there will be an ongoing need for support in the sectors targeted by this project, the TE recommends that UNDP work with donors to develop a follow-up project that continues and/or scales up the work, in line with relevant regional strategies and plans
