Comments:

Se ha realizado una evaluación a nivel global que se ha retrasado más de lo esperado. Se espera contar con el informe final a fines de agosto de 2016.

El informe final se retrasó y la Oficina hizo comentarios; estamos esperando la devolución del borrador pero esperamos tener el documento antes de fin de año.

Parece que el informe final no va a estar listo antes de fin de año y tampoco el Management Response de las recomendaciones. Por ello, se solicita extensión hasta marzo de 2017.

Lessons
Findings
Recommendations
1

There is no methodology or guidance given in the ProDoc for the CP to calculate the target indicators. The target indicators reflect the achievement of the outcomes and by calculating them each year, they help to plan the effort to put in each activity. These methodologies and parameters to calculate the indicators should be defined in the M&E plans. In this particular program of market transformation, the end-user awareness and the cost of the SWH systems were not defined as indicators whereas they allow understanding the market evolution. The definition of adapted target indicators together with the development of clear methodology to monitor these indicators would help UNDP, UNEP and the country counterparts to understand the progress towards the project goals.

2

The ProDoc was developed several years before the implementation started and the situation might have changed in-between. Moreover, in order to develop a program meeting the specific needs of the context, exact information of the situation is vital to develop the specific solutions to tackle the main barriers. It is recommended that a timely market analysis is needed at the beginning of program involving market transformation activities, to ensure integration of all the important market stakeholders and address the country specific, real existing barriers of the market. This market study should be used as a baseline in order to compare the former situation with the market at the end of the program.

3

Establish a system for information collection and monitoring energy performance of SWH installations. The MdE needs to capture the positive impact of the SWH market through the setup of a robust monitoring and reporting system to evaluate the capacity and the energy performance of the installed SWH systems. Currently, the area of installed SWH in m2 is established by the AEE INTEC, but the methodology is based on estimation and the MdE should monitor more accurately the SWH market
