The CO will include a deeper risk assessment analysis to be conducted with the relevant stakeholders in the new interventions.

Key Actions:

2. Recommendation:

Project history documentation to be taken more seriously by all implementing partners in Mozambique, at government, civil society and international organization level, including transparent and publicly accessible information on the objectives, finances and results of the implemented projects.

Management Response: [Added: 2018/01/12] [Last Updated: 2018/01/12]

The recommendation is well noted. In the new interventions the CO will ensure history documentation is well recorded and filed.

Key Actions:

3. Recommendation:

Newly created organizations or organizations being restructured must not take the leading role in project implementation and be rather beneficiaries of capacity development efforts.

Management Response: [Added: 2018/01/12] [Last Updated: 2018/01/12]

UNDP will discuss this recommendation with the relevant stakeholders during the formulation phases of the project documents to ensure adequate capacities are in place.

Key Actions:

4. Recommendation:

Project document and logical framework must contain information on methodologies, sample sizes, and assumptions made to develop the indicator framework.

Management Response: [Added: 2018/01/12] [Last Updated: 2018/01/12]

The recommendation is well noted and will be applied for new project documents.

Key Actions:

5. Recommendation:

Co-financing commitments must be properly documented and included in the project’s annual implementation reviews and audits

Management Response: [Added: 2018/01/12] [Last Updated: 2018/01/12]

The CO will ensure all co-financing contributions are documented for new interventions.

Key Actions:

6. Recommendation:

ANAC should operationalize the strategic and financial plan, reviewing and correcting them to fit the new institutional setting. ANAC’s vision must be complementary with FNDS and BIOFUND to assist protected areas to adopt management tools such as METT and, together with BIOFUND, maintain and operational database on protected areas and biodiversity, and help PAs without tourism development and management capacities to catch up with the revenue generating protected areas.

Management Response: [Added: 2018/01/12] [Last Updated: 2018/01/12]

UNDP will lobby for the implementation of this recommendation and seek to include this type of approach in the new interventions.

Key Actions:

7. Recommendation:

UNDP, the World Bank and other multilateral and bilateral partners must seek opportunities to facilitate dialogue and constitutional development between FRELIMO and RENAMO and thus help avoid the destruction of the outstanding recovery of the iconic Gorongosa National Park.

Management Response: [Added: 2018/01/12] [Last Updated: 2018/01/12]

The recommendation is noted but the CO considers difficult to implement.

Key Actions:

8. Recommendation:

Participation in a certification scheme could help expand current yield and area targets, by enabling access to markets and premium prices. GRP needs to keep engaging traditional authorities, considering the role they play in land allocation and use. Moreover, GRP should consider extending support or coordination with the district’s services of economic activities (SDAE).

Management Response: [Added: 2018/01/12] [Last Updated: 2018/01/12]

The CO takes note of the recommendation and will discuss its feasibility with the involved stakeholders as part of the formulation of the new interventions.
