The Independent Evaluation Department (IED) agrees with the four lessons stated in the project completion report (PCR) resulting from the Project’s successful implementation. These were (a) active involvement of beneficiaries in the project processes through social mobilization; (b) training, awareness raising, and capacity building of beneficiaries in the ensuring sustainability of the subprojects; (c) appointment of qualified staff and retaining them for the duration of the Project to avoid implementation delays; and (d) active support of the provincial government and of senior executing agency (EA) management in project implementation. Furthermore, continued capacity building support to the community-based organizations (CBOs) is required for the sustainability of community infrastructure.
