Lessons
Findings
Recommendations
1 UNDP should ensure timely release of project funds, with a view to facilitating the fast-tracking of output delivery during the extension phase of SAICM I
2 Given the centrality of the role played by the UNDP officers directly in charge of the SAICM project, the Management of UNDP should also seriously consider the possibility of re-aligning the duties of these officers during the fast-track extension phase of the project
3 The UNDP and NEMA should develop and agree on an effective strategy to ensure that within UNDP?s procurement guidelines and procedures, the needed Consultants could be expeditiously procured; contracted and managed.
4 It is recommended that conscious and deliberate efforts should be made as soon as possible, to constructively engage the Government of Uganda together with the current and other potential donors on working out way forward for a follow-on effort for SAICM 1; with a view to ensuring continuity
