lessons learned
Lessons learned
  • In order to remain relevant to the local context, the project scope must remain within the framework of the national development strategy, and donors’ support to achieve its gaols and the MDGs
  • Community infrastructure projects are an effective tool for improved local governance and ensure community participation
  • Support to small business and local entrepreneurship is key to improve local economic development and contribute to improved living standards
  • Project scope and time frame are usually too short to sustain microcredit and support to local cooperatives
  • Long-term programme sustainability is difficult given the average project duration (2 years) and donors' annual planning
  • Limited donors diversification makes it difficult to create synergies and expand geographically
  • Community based organizations have limited capacity and resources to support project implementation
  • Local authorities have little flexibility to use their budget to complement and add on to project interventions
  • Low levels of local investment impact negatively on long term sustainability of interventions [rehabilitation of community infrastructure and support to small businesspeople, traders and entrepreneurs].
