Evaluation Plan: 2009-2013
Evaluation Type: Project
Completion Date: 07/2013
Unit Responsible for providing Management Response: Bureau for Policy and Programme Support
Documents Related to overall Management Response:
 
1. Recommendation:

The LTA should identify the areas of work and initiatives that need to be tackled as an implementation of the SAP and in search of the sustainable management of Lake Tanganyika resources.  In parallel, the LTA should investigate the levels of capacity and achievement, if any, in the four riparian countries in the relevant disciplines.  It should then match the needs with the capacity and achievement and share the leads in an equitable fashion thus creating centres of excellence.  The centres must not exercise any monopolistic claims on the respective work and initiatives, but function as firsts among equals.

This will be taken into account for future programming.

2. Recommendation:

In each of the four countries (including Burundi), the relevant government and private sector organizations responsible for Agriculture, Forestry, Water Management, Land-Use Planning and other relevant responsibilities should collaborate to formulate a joint proposal for a project which will research and monitor the comparative effectiveness of various land use practices to reduce sedimentation.  The investigations should also cover the effectiveness of riparian buffer strips, planted and allowed to mature naturally.  UNDP could advise on an appropriate source of funding support.

3. Recommendation:

UNDP should obtain the concurrence of GEF and reach agreement with UNOPS-IWC as the EA, for an extension of the Burundi Component until the end of July 2013.  This extension will be at no additional cost to GEF.  It will also be necessary to delay the wrap-up of the Regional Component until the end of August 2013 to allow for an orderly closure of the overall project.

4. Recommendation:

UNDP should formulate a new project to be presented for funding to the GEF and other donor partners.  The project should strengthen the LTA and promote its leadership role; it should focus on initiatives that require collaboration such as the regional monitoring system, fisheries management, applied research on the effectiveness of various farming techniques, exploring renewable energy to reduce reliance on charcoal and fuel wood.  The project should run for five to six years and be executed regionally (possibly by the LTA) with leading positions assigned to the four countries on an equitable and capacity basis, and furthering the idea of centres of excellence proposed under 7.1 above.
