Lessons
Findings
Recommendations
1

Recommendation 1: Evaluation Mission feels it is important to find from other projects or sources, funds to remedy the deficiencies outlined

2

Recommendation 2: For future projects, the Evaluation Mission recommends that the UNDP office monitor the work of the project PIUs with greater frequency and depth.

3

Recommendation 3: Again, for future projects, the Evaluation Mission recommends that no Project Document be signed until it contains a detailed Exit Strategy. The strategy should contain plans for ensuring the post-project sustainability of the effort. Mainly, a “human resources stability plan”, as well as “financial sustainability plan” that preferably relies on sources of extra-budgetary funding
