Lessons
Findings
Recommendations
1 UNCDF should apply the lessons and experience of the ALDP project to develop a broader programme that addresses the wider dimensions of poverty including, food security, access to basic services; environment and energy; and job creation (as was the original project design) but with substantially enhanced technical supervision to ensure programmatic compliance with project design.
2 Engage in dialogue with the broader donor community to develop a targeted partnership that can provide adequate resources for the launch of the project on a national scale. This will involve developing a partnership strategy that can unpack the various components of the programme so that respective donors can provide support only for those components that address their respective areas of cooperation with the GoSE. For example, specific programme components can be built around environment, gender, civil society, energy and private sector development.
3 Undertake comprehensive needs assessment exercise to collect relevant and targeted baseline data for all zobas. In addition, this will involve the development (possibly as part of the project) of institutional mechanisms and regional level capacities for tracking and monitoring these indicators on an on-going basis.
4 Engage in dialogue with the broader donor community to develop a targeted partnership that can provide adequate resources for the launch of the project on a national scale. This will involve developing a partnership strategy that can unpack the various components of the programme so that respective donors can provide support only for those components that address their respective areas of cooperation with the GoSE. For example, specific programme components can be built around environment, gender, civil society, energy and private sector development.
5 Undertake a comprehensive capacity development programme for project teams to lead the projects in the regions. The specific composition of the regional management teams will depend on the sectoral components of the programme.
6 Any future programme must have a resident senior technical advisor as a basic and fundamental requirement. This person must be capable of engaging the GoSE on a continuous technical basis to ensure the capture of the concepts by the GoSE and the implementation of the outcomes on a national basis. Ideally, this person should be a project staff member.
