Terminal evaluation of Uganda/ UN REDD National Programme
Commissioning Unit: Uganda
Evaluation Plan: 2016-2020
Evaluation Type: Project
Completion Date: 08/2018
Unit Responsible for providing Management Response: Uganda

1. Recommendation:

RECOMMENDATION 1 – Staff Recruitment: Staff recruitment needs to be expedited to avoid program delays. Understandably, UN agencies processes can be protracted but considerations could be made to initiate program staff recruitment at the earliest possible time. This could potentially reduce some of the implementation delays and failure to meet targets. For instance, considerations could be made to initiate the recruitment process once it is certain that a program will go ahead by soliciting expressions of interest conditional on final project funding approval.

2. Recommendation:

RECOMMENDATION 2 – Activity Sequencing:  During the formulation phase, it is important to consider sequencing activities in such a manner that they are useful for the key products. The forest accounts work proved to be a key output, but the sequence resulted in the loss of opportunity to inform the REDD+ process on data gaps that could have informed the formulation of the activities under the FCPF additional funding. As outlined in this report, Forest Accounts could be a highly valuable tool for informing policy and key decision makers on the critical value of the forest sector and justification for equitable fiscal support going forward.

Management Response: [Added: 2018/08/13]

Project management to always consider sequencing activities in such a manner that they are useful for the key products during the formulation phase

3. Recommendation:

RECOMMENDATION  3: National REDD+ Strategy: Following the acknowledgment that additional work is necessary to improve that NRS, the Roadmap prepared under Outcome 3 by IUCN outlines important aspects that are in the critical path for successful implementation of the REDD+ strategy options at sub-national level. It is highly recommended that considerations be made on how to respond to the proposals. In doing so, further considerations could be made how REDD+ can add value towards strengthening forest sector governance in anticipation of the implementation of landscape emission reductions programs that are being planned.

Management Response: [Added: 2018/08/13]

4. Recommendation:

RECOMMENDATION 4: Institutional Capacity: Noting the future role of NFA GIS Unit, the current level of staff complement is inadequate considering the high demand for services, data, and analytical support in future as the implementation of the NRS begins. Technical units can benefit from closer collaboration with tertiary institutions by having defined internship programs for instance.

Management Response: [Added: 2018/08/13]

UNDP and partners to ensure closer collaboration with tertiary institutions by having defined internship programs.

5. Recommendation:

RECOMMENDATION 5: Upscaling and fund/resource mobilization: As the country transition from REDD+ Readiness to implementation, there are significant efforts across institutions, development partners, CSOs and private sector to develop program proposals to mobilize funding resources. This is a positive sign but also one that needs careful coordination and collaboration to reduce the risk of duplication, inconsistencies, and potential conflicts between program proposals in different institutions. The coordination capacity of FSSD will need to be strengthened to ensure proposal to international climate funds are complementary and not competing.
