9. Recommendation:

Evaluation Recommendation or issue 9: Risk Matrix revision:  At the project design a number of risks were identified together with their mitigation measures but since the project delayed and a lot of changes have so far taken place especially the volatile political and security situation as well as the need to align with the new UNDAF 2016-20 cycle and non-realization of some committed resources like the UNCDF funds for De-risking the 5 FSPs, calls for a revision of the Risk Matrix to align it with the current prevailing situation.
