Land Improvement Project: Project Completion Report
sector: Agriculture, Natural Resources, and Rural Development | country: Uzbekistan
A thorough review of the project at the midterm review to identify key issues and prepare remedial measures was key to the adequate completion of the project.
On-farm works requiring consultation with and contributions from beneficiaries require considerable time, efforts, and resources. Hence, their design, schedule, resource allocation, and implementation arrangements need to be planned carefully.
Cofinancing by Global Environment Facility (GEF) is particularly useful for agricultural projects with environment- sensitive issues like water and soil salinity, and water logging.
The government’s and beneficiaries’ in-kind contributions included in the project cost estimates should be quantifiable to ensure the proper monitoring and audit of the project’s financial statements.
