UNDP MCO in cooperation with the Government of Jamaica and the Development Bank of Jamaica should consider further capacity building for local private ESCOs to learn the skills and concepts that they need to successfully carry out performance contracting.


UNDP MCO should pursue engagement with the Ministry of Health and in order to secure funds for procurement and installation of solar water heaters for the project beneficiary HCFs.


UNDP MCO should ensure that the RE/EE projects are based on a clear and explicit theory of change and coherent results framework.


UNDP CO should ensure that indicators for the project results and their target values are correctly formulated to measure delivery at the project output and outcome levels and that progress towards achievement of results is regularly assessed at the level of project outputs. 


The UNDP MCO should consider creation of a database of national experts in RE and EE linked to national post-secondary educational institutions and professional associations in order to have a pool of national RE/EE experts at hand and shorten the recruitment of project personnel for RE/EE projects. 


For GEF-funded projects, UNDP MCO and the national implementing partners should track actual levels of co-financing during implementation and report the actually realized levels of co-financing in annual PIRs.
