Lessons
Findings
Recommendations
1

Placing additional emphasis on retaining an international technical specialist to assist in the tasks normally performed by a Chief Technical Advisor (CTA).

2

Looking for means of extending training and technical assistance and AMIS efforts after PEERAC ends

3

Stressing the importance of ‘market pull’ efforts to project participants.  The technology push components are very popular, but there seems to be much less interest in ‘market pull’ activities.  Such efforts will nevertheless become necessary if the industry is to accomplish a market-driven transformation.

4

Undertake a review of the project’s approach for determining goals and objectives, and try to develop a more realistic measure of the project’s contribution to energy savings and emissions reductions.

5

Examine the data and assumptions employed in the original calculations of these parameters, and determine whether they are accurate and remain suitable.

6

Continue to use other indicators as guides for project management and evaluation, and continue to use quantitative measures to the extent possible.

7

Incorporate data about alternative refrigerants (e.g., energy efficiency, GWP, environmental impacts, etc.) in all of its technical training and assistance programs.

8

Coordinate project efforts with other UNDP and MEP programs addressing refrigerants to the fullest extent possible.
