3

Evaluation Recommendation or Issue 3 : Identify relevant concrete activities with visible impact, which correspond to national priorities and expected results; and accelerate their achievement within the time limits, such as micro-irrigation, development, reforestation, forest restoration activities, etc., which could create concrete and green jobs, to better meet the objectives of the Rio conventions, through sensitization and cascade animation and strengthening of synergies and complementarity with related projects

4

Evaluation Recommendation or Issue  4 : Focus on activities making it possible to both contribute to improving the level of public information on the Rio conventions provisions and the access of project activity beneficiaries to environmental, economic and social benefits compensating for the efforts made for compliance with the Rio conventions

5

Evaluation Recommendation or Issue  5 : If the 2014 self-assessment is not updated; plan rapid diagnosis in the by-component analyzes in order to identify (new/real) needs in specific technical and professional capacity building for the institutional and individual actors involved in the Project implementation, for compliance with the Rio conventions

6

Evaluation Recommendation or Issue 6 : Extend the project duration to October 30, 2023 to fill the gaps in carrying out activities, depending on available budget resources.

7

Evaluation Recommendation or Issue 7: Establish an Annual Work P lan with a specific strategy for developing a national sustainable development plan that fully integrates the obligations of the Rio Convention (Indicator 7) with a clear and consensual action plan.

Evaluation Recommendation or Issue 8 : Quantify the objectives to be achieved in order to facilitate an objective assessment of the effectiveness or even the sustainability of the results obtained at the end of the project

9

Evaluation Recommendation or Issue 9 : Diversify participation in setting up the environmental information system by involving all public and private stakeholders, including non-governmental organizations

Evaluation Recommendation or Issue 10 : Speed up the payment process for consultant services and participants in activities, given that the slow and delayed payments for delivered services discourage partnership and undermine enthusiasm and even attendance

11

Evaluation Recommendation or Issue 11 : By accelerating awareness process and cascade animation, carry out relevant and priority activities closely linked to the ultimate objectives of the Rio conventions and to the results, particularly the contribution to reducing greenhouse gas emissions in the atmosphere, the fight against land degradation and the loss of natural fauna and flora resources; accelerate their completion within time limits.
