Lessons
1.

Lesson 1:  UNDP is perceived as the technical collaborator by providing instrumental technical assistance to ministries during the implementation of IDPSE project. The intervention of international experts to implement best practice could not have been possible without the aid of UNDP. UNDP act as both a facilitator due its global network but also provided financial support to the government through fund raised with international donors.

Lesson 2: Close proximity of UNDP’s focal point with the Ministries are perceived to help in having better monitoring and coordination while implementing projects.  That is why ministries will appreciate to have a dedicated focal point from UNDP who has an overview of all projects and different missions in the event resource are available.

Lesson 3: UNDP has assisted with a diversity of projects and partners ranging from top governance to grass roots civil society organizations engaged in promotion of gender equality. A momentum seems to have been created to push forward actions on Gender Based Violence ranging from research for evidence, policy, legal reform, capacity building and service delivery which have been made possible with UNDP as a partner.

Lesson 5: The presence of a full time in country based National Gender Expert has facilitated progression on gender equality through creation of baseline information through audits, capacity building and research.

Findings
Recommendations
1

Think beyond the digital world- It has been suggested that UNDP shall come up with proposals of studies to give insights and solution about the sustainability of a digital transformed system.  It seems that the digital transformation of public civil service has already paved its way to adoption but the ministry needs the expertise of UNDP to ensure continuity in terms of best practice in other developed countries.

2

The UNDP needs to continue to support the Legislative Assembly of Mauritius with expertise on Gendered Development. Parliament needs to have quick response for information from a gendered perspective which must come from a source of authority on Gender
