Unit Responsible for providing Management Response: Uruguay
Documents Related to overall Management Response:
 
1. Recommendation:

The COVID19 Pandemic has had the effect of virtually stopping almost every activity in the world. Uruguay is no exception and although the project is virtually completed, some activities that had not been completed at the time of the shutdown order are still lacking. Some of activities listed in the 2020 work plan presented in the Planning Report submitted to the Project Steering Committee. It is the recommendation of this evaluator that as far as possible a temporary extension of about 3 or 4 months be made so that certain important activities can be completed. 

Management Response: [Added: 2020/09/02]

MVOTMA - PNUED 2020/06 Completed Completed. Extension was approved by UNDP GEF Executive Director on June 30th
2. Recommendation:

In the future when designing projects involving the need for approval of regulations, the time required for the elaboration, socialization and possible approval should be considered. In this particular case, the change from a law to a decree consumed quite a bit of time and when Decree 15/2019 was finally enacted the project was one year away from being completed.

Management Response: [Added: 2020/09/02]

Agreed. The development of a legal framework requires institutional times and procedures that should be considered in the project schedule

3. Recommendation:

When proposing business models and in particular for activities such as waste management, it is important to have greater clarity on the volume to be generated given the size of the population and the investment needed to achieve its economic feasibility. It is common to think that, because an activity is necessary, it can be sustainable without considering a cost-benefit analysis of what the operation implies with first-class environmental management standard

Management Response: [Added: 2020/09/02]

Agreed. This recommendation should be considered in the design of future projects.

During this project implementation, a business model was developed in order to make a cost-benefit analysis, considering a new legal framework of a waste management decree with no taxes scheme (instead of a law including taxes), and as a consequence, adaptative management was applied and the decree was developed and approve
