Lessons
Findings
Recommendations
1

Continue to provide support on the development of the Measurement Reporting and Verifying (MRV) Coordination Mechanism, and the Gender Mainstreaming Roadmap (proposal developed by PC as part of the updating of the Nationally Determined Contributions).

2

A new Energy Policy was approved by Cabinet in 2021. Follow up on the development of a feasible plan for its implementation. In relation to this continue to provide support linked to the establishment of a Dept of Environment with strong coordination function for energy.   

1. Recommendation:

Continue to provide support on the development of the Measurement Reporting and Verifying (MRV) Coordination Mechanism, and the Gender Mainstreaming Roadmap (proposal developed by PC as part of the updating of the Nationally Determined Contributions).

Management Response: [Added: 2021/08/12]

UNDP partially accepts this recommendation: Whereas support on the development of the Measuring, Reporting and Verifying Coordinating Mechanism and Gender Mainstreaming Roadmap only requires committee membership and participation in the review of key documentation and feedback on key issues, etc, the UNDP would be able to commit to that support. Support of a monetary value, however, would not be possible as the project has now come to a close.

Key Actions:

Key Action Responsible DueDate Status Comments Documents
The UNDP will continue to support the MRV coordination mechanism as well as the Gender Mainstreaming Roadmap by attending meetings and provided input as requested by the Government.

Management Response: [Added: 2021/08/12]

UNDP partially accepts this recommendation. Correspondence can be sent to the relevant counterparts endorsing the necessity of its development and maintain dialogue through the relevant committee representation to aid in the development of an implementation plan.

Key Actions:

Key Action Responsible DueDate Status Comments Documents
The UNDP will draft and submit a letter to the Government of the Commonwealth of Dominica undertaking advocacy around the plan for implementation. As for the establishment of a Department of Environment, involvement in this activity would be led by the government and is therefore not a n action UNDP can commit to.
