Midterm Evaluation “Enhancing Transboundary Cooperation and Integrated Water Resource Management in the White Drin and the Extended Drin Basin” Project
Commissioning Unit: Kosovo
Evaluation Plan: 2016-2020
Evaluation Type: Project
Completion Date: 12/2019
Unit Responsible for providing Management Response: Kosovo
Documents Related to overall Management Response:
 
1. Recommendation:

Evaluation Recommendation or Issue 6: It is important that Kosovo move alongside its neighbours in addressing Drin Basin challenges. It is not eligible for vertical funding and efforts by GWP-Med, and both UNDP IRH and Kosovo, should be exercised to leverage bi-lateral funding for inclusion of Kosovo. At the very minimum continuation for Kosovo participation in DCG and SAP implementation should be ensured through their participation as “experts in their respective fields”

Management Response: [Added: 2019/11/08]

Appropriate action for the implementation of the recommendation will be undertaken

PCU 2020/12 Not Initiated
2. Recommendation:

Evaluation Recommendation or Issue 9: In preparing to undertake the focal groups associated with the development of the SAP, care should be taken to not create over-expectations of what can be delivered within the scope of the current project. It should contain a mix of on-the ground measures that can be easily be decided on (such as diversion of the Sateska river from Lake Ohrid), but also for additional planning and data gatherings and analysis. A target should be to have an agreed SAP by June 30, 2020 for submission to GEF as a precursor for applying for GEF 7 funding for SAP implementation.
