Lessons
Findings
Recommendations
1

It is recommended to UNDP as the agency at the forefront of BCLME initiatives, to ensure that further support to the BCC or the governments from GEF or elsewhere should give priority to operationalization of the SAP and in particular it should actively involve other sectors apart from fisheries, and institutions from outside government in the private sector, relevant NGOs and coastal communities at grassroots level.

2

It is recommended to UNDP and the GEF that an Exit Workshop or similar event be made a mandatory activity of project closure, in the same way as the Inception Workshop is part of the project launch.  The Exit Workshop must bring together project personnel (including past consultants) and those organizations and individuals who are identified as being in a position to continue with the work of the project.  At the Workshop, the project needs to outline the work accomplished and the outstanding work that still needs to be done and identify whether these can “live” on their own, or require a champion.  Consensus then needs to be reached on who is taking over the responsibility both for unfinished work as well as for products and benefits that need to be “adopted” and sustained by someone else.  It is most important that to the extent possible, a source of funding support is identified to ensure financial sustainability.
