5. Recommendation:

Recommendations to the United Nations System Agencies

Although the EMPRETEC project was and continues to be funded mainly by the UNDP –The Gambia Country Office, but the objectives, activities, target groups and direct beneficiaries of the project makes it quite relevant to the outcomes of UNDAF-The Gambia as well as the organisational mandate and Country Programmes (CPs) of other United Nations System Agencies other than the UNDP alone.

In this respect, it is recommended that the UNDP engages the other UN Agencies within the system with a view to mobilizing their contribution to the future funding requirements of the project. This could be undertaken in collaboration with senior staff of the Ministry of Trade, selected members of PSC, TAC and the senior management of the EMPRERTEC Centre

In the light of recommendations for a one-year Transition Program, it is furthermore recommended that the UNDP continues funding the project for a further one year commencing October 2017
