PDF File Size: 769 KB | Download   
The project has been of great importance in the framework of the Government's national programme for the alleviation of rural poverty through the newly established decentralized structures of local self-government. It has been quite successful in getting strong government support, particularly in terms of funds allocation. Food aid has been useful as a resource to mobilize the participatory capacity of the rural poor for building infrastructures, thus enabling them to raise their income. A major positive factor has been the close partnership between the Government, WFP and the German Technical Cooperation (GTZ) early on and throughout the implementation of the project, particularly when considering that previous WFP assistance to the road sector has suffered from the lack of complementary inputs, including support to management. The project has taken into account these lessons and has demonstrated the benefits of close cooperation: GTZ has provided much needed technical and management support, ensuring more effective use and accountability of the resources. In addition, the substantial inputs provided by the Government and WFP have allowed GTZ to expand significantly the scope and area of intervention; all these factors have produced positive results for RCIW and the groups it targets. Despite the fairly positive experience of the project todate, there have been some concerns: quantitative achievements have been limited for a number of reasons; parallel structures in the project set-up (government structures versus specifically assistance-driven ones) might affect sustainability prospects of the overall rural community works undertaking; management and absorption capacity are still somewhat weak, among others. Some of these shortcomings are understandable. It should be noted that the decentralization of power and resources, and the attempt to increase strong community participation in decision-making and management is a new experience and a process that needs some time for consolidation. In view of this, the mission recommended the project to be consolidated and not to be expanded for the time being beyond the 20 districts currently covered.
