1. Recommendation:

Moving towards a more integrated platform. The project implementation has highlighted the need to ensure that public and private partners streamline development efforts in a coherent way rather than engaging in isolated initiatives. While the KPPC project acts as a platform and tries to reach out to multiple stakeholders in the wider framework of the KNDP, the risk is that efforts will become dispersed and lack in holistic approach / strategy. With this in mind, the government and UNCT should consider launching a joint national KNDP platform. The platform should be open to all development and public and private partners in the country. It may take the form of both a virtual and physical space hosted, for example, by the GSSCPD and supported by UNDP. The new platform could provide both public and private sector contributors with a space for experimentation, collaboration, analytics and human resource development. Evidence-based research towards a more reliable and more informed national policy-making and strategy development are an important element. The role of the platform could be that of testing and promoting new approaches, methodologies and possibly new types of institutions to provide ‘out of the box’ solutions that bring about transformative change. To do this, the platform could draw on the experience accumulated under the project so far, as well as from expertise from around the world, including UN innovation facilities and tools.
