3. Recommendation:

Consider transitioning UN-PRAC into a regional programme with sufficient resources to operate at the regional level with national components.

Management Response: [Added: 2019/06/02] [Last Updated: 2020/11/25]

Agreed, with the caveat that the existence of specific national components will depend on the circumstances: preparedness of the country and donor availability and interest. In any case, UN-PRAC has already explored this avenue with the initiation of the existing national project in Solomon Islands.

From UN-PRAC ‘s perspective, one more important aspect of a programmatic approach, than national components,  is  thematic components, which can be then co-financed by various donors

4. Recommendation:

Increase the Donor Base of the Regional Work

Management Response: [Added: 2019/06/02] [Last Updated: 2020/11/25]

Agreed. UN-PRAC has approached MFAT and also exploring other avenues. Recommendation No3 is also valuable in this regard.  One point of caution in this regard is that too big diversification could bring complications around coordinating donor priorities and various approaches. In that regard and considering the long-standing strategic partnership, DFAT is still appreciated as the “core” donor.

5. Recommendation:

Re-consider the added value of the provision of small grants to project beneficiaries.

Management Response: [Added: 2019/06/02] [Last Updated: 2020/11/25]

Agreed to reconsider/review this paltform, mainly in exploring innovative ways to engage with partners, particularly from the civic sector. The Project recognises that the grants are a cumbersome exercise and not easy to manage and oversight at a regional level. However, operational vehicles for reaching out to partners and providing them with working tools are needed. The design of the next phase of the project will certainly take this point under consideration.

Key Actions:

6. Recommendation:

Promote more bilateral and multi-lateral interactions between beneficiaries through UN-PRAC platforms.

Management Response: [Added: 2019/06/02] [Last Updated: 2020/11/25]

Agreed. Limited funding is one main impediment in this regard, while a number of platforms have been explored and will continue to be so, particularly in context of peer-to-peer exchange, regionally and bilaterally. Partnerships with government, region and global organizations are explored in this regard and also   with other existing UNODC and UNDP projects.  This recommendation will be particularly considered in the design of the next phase of the project.

Key Actions:

More interventions – both through mainstreaming and targeting – are required to promote gender equality in the project’s work.

Management Response: [Added: 2019/06/02] [Last Updated: 2020/11/25]

Agreed. UN-PRAC is currently performing scoping of existing initiatives and opportunities, and all this will be factored in the design of the next phase.
