Documents Related to overall Management Response:
 
1. Recommendation:

A new project should follow-up with outputs of the capacity building work to deepen the impact of the achieved results. The institutions still need further support to implement the proposed guides, plans and structural changes. This includes a continued focus to empower women by providing further administrative and financial training and support their career development through additional capacity building. Another phase of the UNDP project would further enhance the impact achieved during the current project.

3. Recommendation:

UNDP should explore how to include more women tailored activities that are still accepted by society during the design phase through consultations with UNWOMEN, national women machineries[1] and national women led organisations. The experience of this project has shown that there is willingness to support women’s empowerment within these institutions. It is worth exploring other ideas that are acceptable within the local context.

 


[1] National women's machineries (or “national machineries for women's advancement”) are government offices, departments, commissions or ministries that provide leadership and support to government efforts to achieve greater equality between women and men.

5. Recommendation:

The project management team should adhere to original project plans and strengthen these through investing more time in detailed planning with each institution. This should include a provision to fund emergency interventions if the needs arise during project implementation. Assessing progress would be more efficient if the results framework would be improved, including verifiable output indicators that reflect the actual project activities and to use a uniform, gender sensitive reporting format that measures progress against the indicators in the results framework.

6. Recommendation:

A new project should continue to explore the role of the WASH Committees. Using these committees to provide an interface between citizens and these public institutions is a novel approach that warrants further support. Some outreach and awareness campaign will be necessary to ensure an adequate representation of women. Further engagement by UNDP would be beneficial to foster leadership roles and ownership of the process by women.
