Lessons
Findings
Recommendations
1

FECO should complete the compilation of lessons learned and best practices from this project and together with other research studies and post it at an electronic document repository together with all research studies and technical reports from the project.

2

FECO together with the institutional stakeholders should incorporate collection of data on PCDD/PCDF measurements into the National Replication Plan in order to facilitate compulsory reporting under the Stockholm Convention. Optimization of the feedback and management scheme during the project execution is necessary and beneficial for follow-up projects on other non-ferrous metal industries.

3

For the update of the National Replication Plan, FECO with the demonstration enterprises should develop detailed technical protocols for use of the demonstrated BAT/BEP and laboratory verification of dioxin releases after the BAT/BEP renovations.

4

FECO should consider organization of additional workshops and seminars for dissemination results of the BAT/BEP demonstration, in particular the detailed technical protocols for replication among the companies selected for participation in the National Replication Plan.

5

FECO in cooperation with the management of the Anhui Tongling Industrial Park should ensure collection and proper dissemination of experience for the benefit of other secondary non-ferrous metal industrial parks in China.

6

UNDP in cooperation with FECO should ensure that all necessary documentation is provided by the outsourcing kept on file ensure sufficient flow of information and documents between the project implementing teams and the outsourcing partners.

7

UNDP CO should ensure that design of future projects on introduction of BAT/BEP are based on a clear theory of change and a related coherent results framework with clear definition of timing for implementation of the individual components.

8

UNDP CO should ensure that project indicators and their target values are correctly formulated to measure delivery at the project output and outcome levels and that progress towards achievement of results is regularly assessed.

9

UNDP CO in cooperation with FECO should include assessment of effectiveness of capacity building activities in future technology conversion projects.

10

For GEF-funded projects, UNDP CO and the national implementing partners should track actual levels of co-financing during implementation and report the actually realized levels of co-financing in annual PIRs.

11

For GEF-funded projects, UNDP CO and the national implementing partners should increase the number of outreach activities and enlarge the focus of the trainings and numbers of people to be trained.
