The project completion report (PCR) listed a number of lessons that essentially address two key areas. The first reiterates the importance of a proper understanding of the policy and institutional environment at the design stage. The second relates to the success that can be achieved by good social mobilization and proper guidance and training of beneficiaries. One further lesson from the Project could be drawn. While there were significant weaknesses in the design of the Project, it had the merit of basic simplicity. It drew on proven technologies with known approaches.
