Lessons
Findings
Recommendations
1

The handover of a number of infrastructures needs to be organised with the relevant institutions, not only to respect national procedures, but also to ensure the maintenance of these infrastructures: Adailou

2

As operational implementation of the project officially terminated, supervision of remaining on-the-ground activities needs to be organised between DEDD and UNDP. Activities include:

i) completion of the educative garden; and ii) connection of the Adailou borehole to standposts.

3

Some infrastructures and equipment are already damaged and require maintenance, namely AWSs in Adailou and Assamo, and cisterns in the Dora area. Other infrastructures are threatened and need to be elevated and/or strengthened before they become out-of-repair. These include: i) the micro-dam in Assamo and the well upstream; and ii) the gabion wall protecting market garden in Adailou. Ideally, additional training could be given to local communities so that they can organise themselves and repair these infrastructures.

4

Strengthening the technical capacity and streamlining the agenda of the NCCC to avoid meeting fatigue and strengthen the NCCC’s workstream
