KEY LESSONS FROM MDTF EXPERIENCE • Government Ownership is enhanced by own implementation, but slower start-up • Technical Secretariats need adequate staffing to support Governments • High expectationsin uncertain environment brings frustration • High fiduciary standards are critical • Public sector focus risks crowding out private sector • Counterpart government funding needs to be reliable, but timely information on necessary funding is needed

RISKS FACING THE MDTFs • Transparency and Accountability in Government Programs • Both Governments stress importance of good governance • Procurement laws (GoNU) and procurement regulations (GoSS) established • Sustainability of Development Programs • Sound project institutions needed to ensure sustainability • Needs to be established at project appraisal

  11. THE WAY FORWARD • Agree on framework and strategy for the MDTFs • World Bank’s focus in National: • broad based growth to non-oil sectors • decentralized service delivery • World Bank’s focus in South: • help improve strategic coherence of development programs and economic policies • capacity building support to the states
