Evaluation recommendation 1.
All stakeholders should be involved in all stages of projects/interventions in social protection (from formulation to implementation and M&E processes). This is
extremely important to make sure that all stakeholders are consistent with each other in methodologies, financial instruments, and business practices so as
together attain the set targets.


Evaluation recommendation 2.
Further capacity building on integration approach in social protection is needed because policy makers and local practitioners need more time to well understand many new concepts brought by the JP, including a multi-tiered, integrated income security system.


Evaluation recommendation 3.
Further evidence-based knowledge and studies on such important issues as expansion of the social protection for women and promotion of gender equality in social protection are needed


Evaluation recommendation 4.
Further evidence-based studies on fiscal space under integrated and flexible finance options involving central and local resources should be regularly conducted, so as to extend coverage to people in needs – both horizontally and vertically - for resilience in unexpected large-scale crises like the COVID-19
