2. Recommendation:

sharing of lessons learnt

Management Response: [Added: 2021/09/08] [Last Updated: 2021/09/08]

- To share the results of the initiative, especially the Masterplan, Local Development Action Plan and the LUPs, within the humanitarian community (GoL, UN agencies, NGOs and Donors) in order to promote the alignment of humanitarian interventions to the local development of Qaraoun catchment area.

- To promote environmental restoration activities as the sector for food-for-asset interventions. Restoration activities, in fact, provide opportunities for labor intense temporary jobs, and, at the same time, ensure a significant impact for the improvement of the environmental status of the country.
