Mitigating the Impact of the Syrian Refugee Crisis on Hosting Communities Mid-Term Evaluation Report
Commissioning Unit: Jordan
Evaluation Plan: 2013-2017
Evaluation Type: Project
Completion Date: 12/2017
Unit Responsible for providing Management Response: Jordan
Documents Related to overall Management Response:
 
1. Recommendation:

Reconsider the various pillars. For example, PVE needs to be a standalone programme that is not related to the resilience of host communities.

Management Response: [Added: 2017/12/09] [Last Updated: 2021/01/09]

PVE is linked to the pillars based on the fact that the resources allocated by the donor are crisis response financial support. Apart from that, the PVE is a stand-alone pillar.

Key Actions:

2. Recommendation:

Link PVE and livelihood interventions. Linkages between and amongst project components appear missing at this stage as a result of the absence of a coherent M&E.

Management Response: [Added: 2017/12/09] [Last Updated: 2021/01/09]

The Country Office is establishing linkages between the different components, especially as the CO will start implementing the new CPD in 2018, where all programme pillars are connected.

Key Actions:

3. Recommendation:

Developing a 5-year emergency strategic intervention plan that builds on UNDP expertise over the coming years and the number of studies conducted. This plan should have objectives, expected outputs, and indicators. This will facilitate coordination within UNDP. Consider holding a retreat to revise the programme’ s logical framework and develop appropriate and relevant indicators and reporting mechanisms.

Management Response: [Added: 2017/12/09] [Last Updated: 2021/01/09]

The CO has already started the coordination exercise and revisited the logical framework.

Key Actions:

4. Recommendation:

Consider promoting CSR and livelihoods within Al-Hassan industrial zone. This can take the form of study tours to promote recycling and/or green activities that would help reduce the pressure on Elakaider as well as promote sustainable livelihoods and the environment.

Management Response: [Added: 2017/12/09] [Last Updated: 2021/01/09]

Although this is a good recommendation, this might be considered in another phase of the programme, as the current scope and funds do not cover this.

Key Actions:

5. Recommendation:

Consider unifying the definitions of Social Cohesion (some believe it to be Jordanian-Jordanian others Jordanian-Syrian). Provide additional support to CSOs in designing and developing programmes for social cohesion.

Management Response: [Added: 2017/12/09] [Last Updated: 2021/01/09]

Done

Key Actions:

6. Recommendation:
  • Invest sufficient time building the exit strategy. This will ensure better chances of sustainability.
  • Linking gender and livelihoods with recycling is a key priority for Canada that UNDP can tap into.
Management Response: [Added: 2017/12/09] [Last Updated: 2021/01/09]

Exit strategy already started. 

A new project to support gender and livelihoods has already been supported by Canada.

Key Actions:

7. Recommendation:

Advocate for policy change for micro-enterprise. This can include tax deductions, administrative fee exemptions for registering businesses and other none-financial support to encourage entrepreneurship in Jordan.

Management Response: [Added: 2017/12/09] [Last Updated: 2021/01/09]

This will be considered during the next phase of support throughout the new CPD
