Lessons
1.

Lessons Learned are:

Address the coordination aspects at the ministry level for improved reform implementation; - Coordination at the ministry/departmental level is the first element that needs to be strengthened further should any future action be taken towards implementation of the PAR. The Project should, therefore, start addressing coordination aspects more consciously.

Strengthen coordination, complementarity and coherence amongst UNDP projects and experts: - UNDP cannot expect that projects and experts would have sufficient intrinsic motivation to improve coordination with other projects and make sure that their own approaches and activities are in complementarity and coherence with other initiatives

Strengthen project management structure; - Considering the moderate project management size, the project could benefit more by mandating key experts deployed to also coordinate the work of other experts in specific activity/result areas of the project.
