1. Recommendation:

Future intervention needs to reduce dependence on external factors such as political will, or bureaucratic processes, hence, it is recommended to stablish realistic goals in the projects´ lifecycles, considering political times and other matters out of the interventions controlFuturFuture

 

Management Response: [Added: 2020/07/27]

Agreed. However, in the implementation of a public policy, such as SNAP, the number and depth of the links expands and deepens with the development of the system itself.  And this almost inevitably, results in an increase in the loss of relative control over some processes and their times

2. Recommendation:

Advances in inter-institutional coordination at the national level must be transferred to the local level so that in all areas there are good levels of coordination with the other entities; since the project aimed at enabling an institutional framework , it is recommended to establish local plans and strategies, integrate inter-institutional teams, and even set up joint offices with other Ministries and Agencies (if possible)

3. Recommendation:

With the experience gained in the creation of protected areas in different parts, it is recommended to record the success factors for the viability of a protected area, including political, social, cultural, economic and environmental aspects.

Management Response: [Added: 2020/07/27]

Agreed. We must reinforce the capitalization of these success factors by those who are not directly involved, sharing these reflections and turning them into true learning for the entire System

5. Recommendation:

Given the limited resources from authorities at the local level, and also the bureaucratic processes, it is recommended to analyze whether the approach should be taken in the development of management plans or territorial planning instruments and decide on any of these. According to the sources of information consulted, the advantage of land use plans is their binding nature and access to budget resources.

Management Response: [Added: 2020/07/27]

Agreed. We have good experiences when the management plans and territorial planning instruments are being prepared simultaneously and there is a possibility of dialogue between both teams in charge
