? Overall project performance in terms of implementation and outcome achievement is rated moderately unsatisfactory. The project has yet to achieve its immediate objective and outcomes. ? If a project operates as both a ?Research? and a ?Capacity Building? project then adequate resources has to be allocated to each of these two very different functions. ? A project document should not rely on former versions of the project document/project brief for details. Operationally the project document should be able to stand alone to avoid any confusion.

Recommendations
1 ? The project needs to finalise, document and publish its research. o Improved harvesting protocol and project technical report will be disseminated. ? The project needs to finalise the ?Perak Tool Set?. This entails operationalised the studies, tools and methods and to package and describe an overall tool kit. ?Packaging? means to present the overall tool kit and provide detailed description of the individual tools and the value they have in biodiversity management/conservation. o Tool kit to be presented to MAJURUS (Technical Management Meeting) at the Forestry Department, Peninsular Malaysia for adoption. ? Once the tools are finalized, the Perak Tool kit is described and developed, the project need to engage with stakeholders to initiate capacity building and discuss how the tools can best be operationalised into recipient organizational structures. o FRIM has established a Resource Centre for Perak Tool which will be transferred to the Forestry Department of Peninsular Malaysia after a transition period of 12 months.
