Lessons
Findings
Recommendations
1

Carry out an independent lesson learnt reflection on the causes to the DSZ implementation delays

2

Risk Management: Although a risk register existed, its use as a management tool was less evident. Moving forward, a review of the risk register needs to be carried out on a quarterly basis involving reflection on activities’ impacts and possible alternative strategies where delays are likely. 

3

Developing Effective M & E system & QA 

4

Added value of final evaluation to be determined on its ability to test new platforms having operated to scale.

5

Supporting the further validation of iVerify through piloting and development of MOU with key stakeholders

6

Building sustainable voter education
