Lessons
Findings
Recommendations
1

Review the log frame and simplify several outputs including at least deleting certification related activities.

2

Push for quick-win SLM/CSA techniques or long-term land improvement with a high return on investments within a conventional farming system.

3

Consider watershed management interventions decentralisation with the support of on-site non-State actors for both watershed management plan formulation and (future) implementation

4

Make PMU more effective with either team removal or CTA additional support

5

Prioritise the finalisation of agreement with complementary interventions (please refer to the MTR description of this recommendation)

6

Consider NGO/non-State actors for CSA/SLM demonstration sites and farmers’ follow-up (adoption)- refer to stakeholder engagement plan.

7

Create a project Technical Committee to facilitate project’s activities’ operationalisation and ensuring project’s outputs quality control

8

Review and amend the stakeholder’s engagement plan following up Government’s institutional changes

9

Enlarge PSC membership (observatory role) with non-State actors to boost local ownership

10

Reassess the role of civil society with a view to more project inclusion (PSC, Technical Committee, activity delivery)

11

Make use of existing Ministry of Agriculture’s expertise with closer collaboration with division for specific activities (e.g., on bamboo control and Forestry Division)

12

Support the (re-)designing of an SLM database with GIS information with a stronger alignment with the Physical Planning Unit

13

Reconvene within 6 months an extraordinary PSC session to assess progress made on A, B, C recommendations and decide whether to close or not the project
