4. Recommendation:

Improve the evidence-base in English language that inform about the decisions taken by the project

Management Response: [Added: 2019/05/29] [Last Updated: 2019/06/20]

The working language in the Kuwaiti governement is Arabic. Meetings that take place at the governement are minuted by national staff and thus written in arabic. It would be difficult to request that minutes are done in english. The Evaluators reservation is that he could not read the minutes and therefore was not able to extract the observations. 

Key Actions:
