Maldives: Outer Islands Electrification (Sector) Project
sector: Energy | country: Maldives
The project completion report (PCR) provided eight lessons that covered the areas of island selection, utility management, regional utility companies (RUCs), capacity of the Ministry of Atolls Administration (MAA), communications, project management, ADB supervision, and systemic challenges with outer islands. This validation finds that the PCR adequately addressed all of the lessons to be learned on the outer islands electrification project and endorses those lessons. It also notes that most of the problems on the project and addressed in the lessons relate to issues that should be normal in the planning and implementation of a project.
