Programme Evaluation Africa Adaptation Programme (AAP)
Commissioning Unit: Bureau for Policy and Programme Support
Evaluation Plan: 2009-2013
Evaluation Type: Project
Completion Date: 03/2013
Unit Responsible for providing Management Response: Bureau for Policy and Programme Support
Documents Related to overall Management Response:
1. Recommendation: Enroll relevant IRTSC (and MCBP) staff as consultants to identify and analyse available tools and guidelines for adaptation mainstreaming and develop a toolbox or guide for adaptation mainstreaming based on this analysis and AAP approaches and experiences. This could be done under the auspices of PEI (or other relevant programmes), which already has experience with developing policy mainstreaming guidelines and tools. This would also allow for cross-fertilisation of the experiences and approaches.
Management Response: [Added: 2014/02/06]

Agreed: Consultation is already underway to enable PEI to build on AAP experiences and enhance mainstreaming actions.

Key Actions:

2. Recommendation: Maintain contact with IRTSC, MCBP and AAP country project staff, to make sure they can easily be reached if/when AAP processes are continued.
Management Response: [Added: 2014/02/06]

Agreed: The services of the AAP Programme Manager and HQ support team have been retained for the first six-nine months of 2013 to pursue AAP sustainability options, keep country teams informed of ongoing events related to AAP and to continue work on the uploading of knowledge products for access by country teams and other UNDP initiatives among other tasks including representation at TICAD V.

Key Actions:

3. Recommendation: Make sure that all remaining AAP financial resources are explicitly utilised to cover critical activities to cover the gap period until further funding is secured to ensure the continuation of the processes initiated and the sustainability of the results achieved (whether under AAP or other initiatives).
Management Response: [Added: 2014/02/06]

Agreed: The remaining interest funds are being utilised by RBA to take forward a number of AAP deliverables and initiatives on a limited basis in six countries. Funding recovered from countries is being utilised in part to ensure full closure of AAP and to consolidate sustainability where opportunities are identified. TICAD V recommended very strongly the continuation of AAP.

Key Actions:

4. Recommendation: Undertake an in-country assessment in 2014 or 2015 of the status of the AAP results and processes, to learn about the sustainability of AAP. Make a similar assessment of the actual use of AAP experiences and approaches in regional programmes and within UNDP.
Management Response: [Added: 2014/02/06]

Agreed: The requirement to undertake a re-assessment of AAP deliverables from a sustainability perspective will be built into the next regional strategy or AAP follow-up.
