Socio-economic recovery in the North and East under the UNDP Country Programme Action Plan (CPAP)

2.1 ENABLING ENVIRONMENT

2.1.7 Institution and capacity strengthening on IE

Recommendation: 1. Ensure projects include focus on capacity strengthening of institutional partners and dissemination of project learning as specifically related to the IE:

  • Include focus on capacity strengthening of government institutions including local authorities.
  • Promote training of trainers in government institutions so that they can continue to train others in their respective offices.

Reference: Samaranayake, Mallika R.; Velupillai, Krishna, 2011, Mid-term Evaluation of Outcome 7: “Socio-economic recovery in the North and East” under the UNDP Country Programme Action Plan (CPAP) 2008-2012 (Sri Lanka), Midterm or interim evaluation, UNDP, New York.

Sample evidence: the evaluation determined that Training of trainers (ToT) from the project was an efficient use of resources.

2.2 DECENT WORK AND ENTEPRISE GROWTH

2.2.4 Environment and sustainable management and the Informal Economy 

Recommendation: 6. Ensure that environment friendly practices are incorporated as a cross cutting theme on all possible interventions particularly with respect to people dependent on the IE and infrastructure related interventions. Sustainable environment issues should not be considered as a separate pillar under TRP.

Reference: Samaranayake, Mallika R.; Velupillai, Krishna, 2011, Mid-term Evaluation of Outcome 7: “Socio-economic recovery in the North and East” under the UNDP Country Programme Action Plan (CPAP) 2008-2012 (Sri Lanka), Midterm or interim evaluation, UNDP, New York.

Sample evidence: The evaluation recommended that environment friendly practices should be incorporated as a cross cutting theme on all possible interventions particularly in livelihood and infrastructure related interventions and should not be considered as a separate pillar under TRP. In terms of long term sustainability, environment concerns should be built into project interventions in close collaboration with the environment cluster. Collaboration with local government institutions will be useful in future interventions.

2.3 DIRECT ACTIONS IN COMMUNITIES

2.3.5 Micro finance

Recommendation: 20. Ensure that the size of individual loans in a micro finance project are sufficient to actually make a difference with regard to investment possibilities for viable enterprises.

Reference: Samaranayake, Mallika R.; Velupillai, Krishna, 2011, Mid- term Evaluation of : “Socio-economic recovery in the North and East” under the UNDP Country Programme Action Plan (CPAP) 2008-2012 (Sri Lanka), Midterm or interim evaluation, UNDP, New York.

Evidence sample: The evaluation noted that, in regard to the size of individual loans, beneficiaries felt that they were usually too small to invest in viable enterprises.

2.4 APPROACHES TO ENHANCE LIVELIHOODS, EQUITY AND INCLUSION

2.4.3. Social protection

Recommendation: 10) Facilitate the strengthening of capacities and understanding of the linkages between social protection and employment. That includes the importance of social protection as an element that contributes to the protection of workers who are dependent on the IE.

Reference: Samaranayake, Mallika R.;  Velupillai, Krishna, 2011, Mid- term Evaluation of Outcome 7: “Socio-economic recovery in the North and East” under the UNDP Country Programme Action Plan (CPAP) 2008-2012 (Sri Lanka).

Evidence sample: collaboration with local government institutions will be useful in future interventions. Awareness and capacity building of community and local government officers and political authorities will be useful from a long term point of view.
