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

Overall: Recommendations are intended for planned second Phase of the GCCA+ project. Climate Change has to be managed through a pluri- and cross sectoral approach due to its complexity. Services to manage and implement CC activities and projects are scarse; Climate activities in Suriname involve different ministries and local authorities. Good stakeholder engagement and continuous communication with government partners is also a key for a successful implementation; Regular inter-departmental discussion at policy and technical level could result improved coordination of national CC Adaptation initiatives.

Key Action(s) . Future projects need to be closely monitored by all parties involved (implementing and executing partners, project governance bodies) in order to establish if they are meeting with expected outputs and products; · Take into account the difficulty to find local skilled experts, as well as international ones, on Climate Change issues for the tendering procedures; · Ensure proper data collection and sharing in usable formats; · Ensure PMU will be fully operative at the beginning of phase 2; · Independent evaluations are extremely valuable for course correction and catalyzing improvements. New evaluation, particularly at their mid-term, should be scheduled in due time in order to be carried out and provide recommendations to be adopted during the project implementation. · When working with communities, underline the importance of economic benefits and/or create incentives for the communities and its members to incorporate sustainable management practices in their productive patterns. - Expansion of visibility of the EU “GCCA+ Suriname”, clear branding within the GCCA+ global community. -Ensure solid and strategic foundation for developing communication and awareness material. -Regular sharing of photos, stories and case studies on GCCA+ Suriname for further disseminated through the EUD and European Commission (social) media channels
