Lessons
Findings
Recommendations
1 The investment made on behalf of national technicians during the preparation process of the Initial and the Second National Communications should be strengthened and better coordinated.
2 It is necessary to act in order to overcome the existing constraints and implement all the recommendations of the Initial and Second National Communications before moving on with the preparation of a Third National Communication.
3 We recommend including a mandatory requirement for releasing Fund. Thus, the forthcoming National communications would be financed upon accomplishment of the recommendations issued from the Initial and Second National communication, as well as the resolution of any shortcomings and pending constraints.
4 It would be necessary to create a government agency, which would be responsible for the creation of related data and field verification on a regular basis for follow-up of operations and maintenance of results already carried out during previous Communications, before moving on with the completion of a Third National Communication.
1. Recommendation: The investment made on behalf of national technicians during the preparation process of the Initial and the Second National Communications should be strengthened and better coordinated.
Management Response: [Added: 2012/02/07] [Last Updated: 2014/02/27]

Preliminary actions for the preparation of the Third National Communication on Climate Change would be closely scheduled and monitored by the UNDP Country Office with the relevant national counterpart and Stakeholders in order to identify the most highly national qualified experts.

Key Actions:

2. Recommendation: It is necessary to act in order to overcome the existing constraints and implement all the recommendations of the Initial and Second National Communications before moving on with the preparation of a Third National Communication.
Management Response: [Added: 2012/02/07] [Last Updated: 2014/02/27]

Basically two main findings were highlighted during the Initial National Communication: -Lack of intersectoral coordination of different national sectors concerned by climate change, resulting in difficulty to mainstreaming climate change issues into the investment programmes; -The low level of awareness of the different actors, in particular the private sector, local communities, decision-makers and others on environmental and climate change issues have made more difficult the preparation of national communication. Among others preliminary actions to be undertaken before moving on the preparation of the Third National Communication these findings should be overcome.

Key Actions:

3. Recommendation: We recommend including a mandatory requirement for releasing Fund. Thus, the forthcoming National communications would be financed upon accomplishment of the recommendations issued from the Initial and Second National communication, as well as the resolution of any shortcomings and pending constraints.
Management Response: [Added: 2012/02/07] [Last Updated: 2014/02/27]

Preliminary actions for the preparation of the Third National Communication on Climate Change would be closely scheduled and monitored by the UNDP Country Office with the relevant national counterpart and Stakeholders in order to meet this requirement.

Key Actions:

4. Recommendation: It would be necessary to create a government agency, which would be responsible for the creation of related data and field verification on a regular basis for follow-up of operations and maintenance of results already carried out during previous Communications, before moving on with the completion of a Third National Communication.
Management Response: [Added: 2012/02/07] [Last Updated: 2014/02/27]

This Agency would institutionalize the implementation of the required actions enabling the country to meet requirement for expected releasing fund for the Third National Communication. The UNDP Country Office is willing to provide all the necessary assistance, on the time due, to support all the actions expected before moving on the preparation process.
