Indonesia: Sustainable Aquaculture Development for Food Security and Poverty Reduction Project
sector: Agriculture, Natural Resources, and Rural Development | country: Indonesia
This validation noted that the project completion report (PCR) underlined several key features, which supported project success: (i) strong institutional capacity development, coordination, and teamwork among all parties involved in project implementation; (ii) effective strategy in empowering women through gender mainstreaming; and (iii) strengthened cooperatives and enterprises. This validation agrees with the lessons stated in the PCR. However, above all these, the most important lesson was to ensure that all requirements for project implementation should be in place early on and, hence, immediate steps can be taken to avoid delays in future projects, which was the key issue during the first 2 years of project implementation.
