Lessons
Findings
Recommendations
1 Revise the Results Framework of the Programme. The programme would benefit from revised results framework, which would include SMART outcomes, outputs and indicators.
2 Continue efforts to integration inputs of measurements to improve efficiency and effectiveness. The use of Gantt charts is recommended. Future capacity building efforts (trainings, workshops etc) should include pre- and post knowledge testing mechanisms.
3 Explore the potential synergies between programme components but also with other relevant programmes, interventions or initiatives that are implemented in South Serbia. The programme did not succeed so far to find synergies between components implemented by different UN Agencies. Such synergies should be proactively explored and implemented to improve effectiveness and impact of the programme.
4 Continue supporting and empowering local governments to fulfil their obligations towards protecting rights of their citizens.
5 Extend the programme duration. The MTE would suggest a 9-12 month period.
6 Devise an Exit Strategy for the Programme

On-going monthly co-ordination meetings between all development programmes operating in south Serbia will be continued and further synergies explored with EU & USAID programme. Concerning co-ordination within the PBILD programme, monthly co-ordination meetings in Belgrade will be formalised. This process started in December with a 2012 work plan meeting in Bujanovac with the PBILD team joined by Belgrade colleagues. 2012 synergies were identified and are in the process of being implemented to ensure added value and further development gains.
