Lessons
Findings
Recommendations
1

NDRCC should consider if the present plans for the information platform are appropriate and whether the plans should be revised to focus on a narrower target group.

2

Th DFID grant a no-cost extension of six to twelve months for the completion of the Programme, subject to the PSC identifying a possible route for cost-sharing or to Chinese funding for the Programme.

3

The PSC should decide what form any third phase of the Programme should take. Ideally any further phase should build on the seven principles of Phase II and should focus on peer-learning exchanges between the countries involved on community-based projects. An early decision is critical here, to give the partners enough time to plan without losing the momentum that has developed in Phase II.

4

The PSC consider establishing quotas for female participation in exchange events.

5

DFID should consider using the development of guiding principles as a tool for the management of programmes of this complexity to ensure that they are effective.

Using guiding principles are particular appropriate in experimental approaches like this Programme, especially that CBDM II may be highly likely extended.
