Tajikistan: Khatlon Province Flood Risk Management Project
sector: Agriculture, Natural Resources, and Rural Development | country: Tajikistan
The project completion report (PCR) presented lessons valuable to ADB operations. Clarity of purpose and objectives, and enhanced processes and procedures helped ensure the government’s commitment and focus to implement the project, and fostered effective coordination among the various agencies involved. Willingness to accept management and technological changes and required reforms were necessary initial and/or baseline elements in the design and implementation of this project. This validation suggests another lesson-the need to undertake prior and proper due diligence on the technical and resource capabilities and commitment of partner institutions. This would determine their suitability when ascertaining the risks and sustainability of their involvement.
