This includes information sharing with the provincial and local levels regarding the scope and the achievement of the actions intended to pursue.

The same as for recommendation above - The dialogue with the Ministry of Trade (MIC) has been difficult. UNDP will consider how this component can be re-positioned.

Key Actions:

11. Recommendation: Direct the GSB resources to the youth given that its impact will be larger. Most of the entrepreneurship under the GSB concept is mainly within the youth population. On the other hand, the youth are among those mostly affected by high rates of unemployment in the country. Hence the need to place this issue on the top of priorities agenda regarding the poverty combat.
Management Response: [Added: 2011/04/27]

It is important to clarify that GSB is not a concept to promote entrepreneurship, but rather a concept to develop and grow sustainable businesses developed in a commercial perspective, led by the private sector and that benefit the poor. This is done by encouraging and stimulating the linkages between the big companies and the small producers in a way that both benefit from each other. The UNDP objective is to facilitate the development of this concept in Mozambique and assisting the small producers in preparing themselves to take advantage of the linkages. However, in its capacity, UNDP will ensure that the youth are considered as the main target of the GSB activities and will design a strategy to prioritize the youth.

Key Actions:

12. Recommendation: GSB should prioritize the small and medium enterprises as they create more jobs in the economy. The impact of SMEs in the improvement of livelihoods is more visible because the possibility of their income to be retained in the economy is higher.
Management Response: [Added: 2011/04/27]

As indicated in the recommendation 3 response, in its nature, GSB focus on the SMEs by helping them to access markets and enlarge their business through linkages with big/multinational enterprises.

Key Actions:

13. Recommendation: Support, within the Framework of Micro Finance initiatives that aim at replicating innovative solutions for financial services provision, such as the mobile bank because they are initiatives that consider the weakness of the banking system in Mozambique and favor a larger territorial coverage and the increment of the banking services users.
Management Response: [Added: 2011/04/27]

The Microfinance project will continue in the coming years with the same line which includes the promotion of innovative financial services. Other services besides the mobile bank will be considered.

Key Actions:

14. Recommendation: Reinforce the prioritization of training people directly linked with the provision f micro-finance services.
Management Response: [Added: 2011/04/27]

We noticed through the 2008 and 2009 fiscal years that the training funds were utilized to train people not directly linked to provision f micro-finance services, such as associated with secretarial services. Discussion was held with the DNPDR and an agreement was reached to prevent that this type of deviation occur again.

Key Actions:

15. Recommendation: Continue to pursue the actions planned for this component and consider the acceptable adjustments from the experience gained so far.
Management Response: [Added: 2011/04/27]

HIV and Gender are important areas in the process of the country development. However, to maximize the impact of the actions in this area, it is important to ensure that they are implemented in an efficient manner. Therefore, UNDP will assess and analyse the areas where there is comparative advantage in comparison with other UN agencies and see where UNDP can bring an added value to focalize its actions to those areas.

Key Actions:

16. Recommendation: Continue the dialogue with the Government, NGOs and the Civil Society in order to ensure the consolidation of a strategic partnership and a clear distribution of roles. The evaluation team considers that the partnership should not only be seen at the funding perspective, but should continue being an important channel partnerships articulation between with the public sector.
Management Response: [Added: 2011/04/27]

The UNDP will work with the implementation partners to share information about the activities being implemented at all ends. Tripartite monitoring visits and program assessment meetings will be undertaken to improve information sharing and partnerships building among all parties

Key Actions:

17. Recommendation: Continue with the efforts towards the integration of Gender component in the public sector planning, covering more state organs (include all Ministries, the Parliament and other state organs). In this process, particularly attention must be paid to the local level, namely the districts and municipalities.
Management Response: [Added: 2011/04/27]

The management will take the recommendation into account. However, with limited resources available, we will prioritize the state actors that have the potential to replicate their actions to other state organs as the main entry points.

Key Actions:

18. Recommendation: Replicate experiences of gender mainstreaming to other higher education spheres.
Management Response: [Added: 2011/04/27]

The recommendation will be taken into consideration
