Kiribati: Sanitation, Public Health, and Environment Improvement Project
sector: Water and Other Urban Infrastructure and Services | country: Kiribati
The project completion report (PCR) provided a number of lessons learned. These include (a) local culture impacts outcome, (b) water and land issues are interlinked, (c) multidimensional projects need effective coordination, (d) organizational change requires time, (e) service improvement requires ongoing motivation and sufficient human resources, and (f) simple and appropriate solutions are less costly and more sustainable. The Validator notes that these are valuable lessons and relevant to most (if not all) of ADB’s projects – not just those in this sector or the Pacific region.
