Pakistan: Sustainable Livelihoods in Barani Areas Project

sector: Agriculture, Natural Resources, and Rural Development | country: Pakistan

This validation agrees with the project completion report (PCR) that a multisector development project covering multiple districts must have the following features: (i) the executing agency must have the essential mandate; (ii) the project needs to have a decentralized project management model; (iii) flexible and demand-driven design of interventions; (iv) flexibility in loan extension and responsiveness to security issues and natural disasters; (v) dedicated sub-account for district governments; and (vi) a project management system designed at appraisal. The incorporation in the design of a demand-driven approach for targeting the poor and ensuring sustainability, and the promotion of small and affordable technologies in villages were appropriate in addressing the development issues identified in the barani areas.
