Lessons
Findings
Recommendations
1

1.1 UNDP to accept that the larger part of the portfolio’s projects is carried over from previous CPD and that these projects were fully justified and relevant when they were started.

1.2 UN system that in order to resolve the challenge facing programme teams as they try to balance known national needs with diluted UNSF Outcomes, the role of the UNSF should be to set the scene by outlining needs and priorities and focusing on guidance and direction for the various agencies

1.3 It is recommended to the E&E Programme Team that they prepare a Programme Document which should distinguish between projects that are being carried over and those newly initiated in response to new needs and priorities

2

1.4 It is recommended to the E&E Programme Team that all projects must undergo a terminal evaluation before closure so as to assess the relevance of each project to the country needs and priorities as identified in the CPD and the Programme, assess the effective delivery of results compared with the targets sought, assess the efficiency through which the resources available have been converted into results, and assess the likelihood of sustainability of the project’s results

3

1.5 It is recommended to UNDP that in an effort to increase the likelihood of sustainability of project results, projects should preferably fit within a broad and strategic context such as national plans and strategies.

4

1.6 An ex-post assessment should be carried out for each project some time (3-5 years) after project closure to assess sustainability and the circumstances that might have contributed towards or against it.

5

1.7 It is recommended to the E&E Programme Team to continue with and improve the practice of requiring the formulation and implementation of a meaningful gender strategy for each project thus contributing to the achievement of SDG-5 for Gender Equality.

6

1.8 It is recommended to the E&E Programme Team that in view of its current success and the continuing needs, priority should be accorded to interventions that deal with renewable energy, management of wastewater and prevention of pollution, sustainable land management and rehabilitation of degraded land and forests
