Lessons
Findings
Recommendations
1

The project was meant to develop experiential training tools and identify key features of institutional and legal frameworks. These outcomes need now to be tested and refined. IW: LEARN should have a prominent role in the dissemination of the results of this project and the refinement of the learning tools.

2

The lessons learned from the project should inform the GEF portfolio on IW. One of the outcomes of the project was to disseminate lessons from legal and institutional frameworks, including non-GEF projects. Synergies between GEF and non-GEF projects should thus be strengthened.

3

Future projects should pay greater attention on the involvement of local experts coming from the Francophone and Portuguese countries of Africa and other regions. One of the outcomes of the project was to ensure the translation of materials into French, Portuguese and Spanish. However, this was not achieved because of the lack of funding during the implementation of the project.

4

The gender mainstreaming strategy should be conceived in a comprehensive manner. It is not only a question of ensuring that a certain number of women participate in meetings and workshops. A gender mainstreaming approach looks at the interactions between women and men and aims to ensure that women participate in decision-making processes.
