3. Recommendation:

Evaluation Recommendation 3:  UNDP-Uganda-CO to work with the UNDP Regional Service Centre to develop Regional multi-country, ecosystem-based programmes that test the application of the provisions of the Rio Conventions for broader trans boundary and regional environmental benefits.

Management Response: [Added: 2021/12/21] [Last Updated: 2022/06/15]

Agree: The Strengthening Institutional Capacity for Effective Implementation of Rio Conventions in Uganda Project, like so many other UNDP supported GEF funded projects before it, was implemented at national level. Even though, Project Management acknowledged the need to learn from experiences from other countries in the region as they implemented the project, the project yielded Uganda specific results which do not recognize the integrity of ecosystems.
