Management Response Documents
1. Recommendation:

Take the necessary steps for the establishment of the Steering Committee and thus facilitate the establishment of the Regional Advisory Committee

Management Response: [Added: 2021/12/01] [Last Updated: 2021/12/17]

UNV agrees with this recommendation. It was planned in the design to set up these committees to ensure the management and sustainability of the program. The change in supervision during the implementation of the program did not favor the implementation, however, an alternative solution is being implemented. The two Committees will be set up no later than the first quarter of the transition phase - the project ended in 2019 and is currently in a transition phase with all main responsibilities being transferred to Government partners. Therefore, no additional key actions are being implemented with regard to these elements of a Management Response (please see Note to the File uploaded to ERC).

2. Recommendation:

Management Response: [Added: 2021/12/01] [Last Updated: 2021/12/17]

The payment of premiums to regional delegations does not ensure the sustainability of the program. However, as was foreseen in the pilot phase, in collaboration with the national side, the program team will find as far as possible an adequate mechanism to pay these bonuses. The project ended in 2019 and is currently in a transition phase with all main responsibilities being transferred to Government partners. Therefore, no additional key actions are being implemented with regard to these elements of a Management Response (please see Note to the File uploaded to ERC).

3. Recommendation:

Support the Government in following up on the adoption of the civic service bill by the National Assembly,

Management Response: [Added: 2021/12/01] [Last Updated: 2021/12/22]

UNV agrees with this recommendation. The bill had been tabled in the assembly since December 2017, with only slow progress on the matter. There is a weakness in the appropriation of the PNVCI by the government, nevertheless, the latter wants to better understand the importance of volunteering, like most countries in the subregion. A strategy of visibility, advocacy and ownership of the PNVCI is in sight. The project ended in 2019 and is currently in a transition phase with all main responsibilities being transferred to Government partners. Therefore, UNV is not in a position to take any additional action (please see Note to the File uploaded to ERC).

UNV Regional Office for West and Central Africa 2019/10 Completed The government finally presented the bill to the parliament in October 2019 and the parliament adopted it. (LOI n° 2019-872 du 14 octobre 2019 instituant le Service Civique)
4. Recommendation:

Support the coordination of the project to find additional resources to finance the implementation of the project.

Management Response: [Added: 2021/12/01] [Last Updated: 2021/12/17]

UNV agrees with this recommendation. Financial sustainability lies in the ownership of the PNVCI by the government (the prime minister and the presidency) and in the clarification of the
supervision of the program in the extension phase. The project ended in 2019 and is currently in a transition phase with all main responsibilities being transferred to Government partners. Therefore, UNV is not in a position to take any additional action (please see Note to the File uploaded to ERC).
