Recommendations

The MTE suggests the following recommendations for successful project delivery, improved project management, greater project communication and visibility, and enhanced sustainability of the project outcomes. 

Recommendation 1 ; Since the project has completed its baseline survey just prior to the MTE, it could not be used to assess progress against the baseline data for this evaluation. Therefore, the project should update the logframe with the baseline information collected in the survey and track project progress from now onwards using the update logframe.
