Lessons
Findings
Recommendations
1 The strengthening of management mechanisms is a pre-condition for success in implementing the changes proposed.
2 Although the present UNDAF provides a good base for coordinated support, and is the basis for the agreed agency CPs and CPAPs, it needs to be revised and restructured, with details such as output indicators reviewed in detail.
3 The existence of functioning and well managed theme groups is considered an essential tool for future theme based planning, implementation, resource mobilization and monitoring,
4 In order to generate the necessary ownership by government and other donor partner stakeholders in the UNDAF, contacts will be required with counterpart agencies to discuss the changes involved, and to stimulate increased government and donor partner participation in the proposed thematic approach, and the measures required to achieved increased aid effectiveness.
5 present MTR and its recommendations confirm the validity of the five Paris Declaration principles
6 In order to ensure that the UNDAF document remains a current and ?living? reference document, there is a need to revise it by amplifying and restructuring the UNDAF Results Matrix so that it covers all UN agency activities, and to adjust the text of the UNDAF accordingly
7 In order for the full UN range of agencies can find a niche within the UNDAF framework, it will be necessary to involve agencies from some of the currently excluded agencies (particularly the non-resident agencies) in normal UNCT events, and in theme groups
8 More systematic use of the ?programme approach? whereby UN system support should be linked to ?upstream? activities, including the the formulation of national strategies or programmes where necessary, and ?downstream? to support implementation of national programmes and strategies;?
9 Strengthen agency project monitoring and reporting in relation to UNDAF outcomes and outputs, to ensure appropriate reporting of results;
10 Strengthen UNDAF monitoring according to thematic areas of support. This is an essential condition for improved performance and results-based management, and the necessary management support and assistance will be required to ensure that UNDAF monitoring is given the necessary priority. The recruitment of an UNDAF M & E officer should be considered, a s well as the formation of an inter-agency M & E group.
11 Strengthening of thematic groups. Activation of thematic groups to monitor thematic results and activities, with designated chairs/co-chairs
12 Strengthening of UNDAF management mechanisms at UNCT, RCO and theme groups levels. This will involve action at a number of levels
1. Recommendation: The strengthening of management mechanisms is a pre-condition for success in implementing the changes proposed.
