Système des Nations Unies au Sénégal SENEGAL 16 What works ? (i) Active participation and support by the UNCT for UNDAF-Tamba process Personal implication of HoA Participatory approach and local appropriation: active participation of the Regional Development Agency and the Regional Council Information and experience sharing among agencies Strong inter-action among UNCT (Staff of UN agencies started to meet and work together) Joint UNCT missions to Tambacounda region
Système des Nations Unies au Sénégal SENEGAL 17 What doesnt work ? Process too long and too time consuming. Not focused enough, Final/End product needs to be better clarified. A bit too theoritical, need to become operational much faster. Process too driven by HoA. Not enough implication of In-house expertise. Working together and information sharing is not yet part of all UN agencies culture. Joint finance mechanism not yet operational.
Système des Nations Unies au Sénégal SENEGAL 18 Lessons learned and applicable to CCA/UNDAF process: Realistic and achievable (less ambitious) objectives. Assure that total UNCT is on-board before meeting external partners (national authorities or donors). Manage expectations, especially among regional and local authorities and population. UNCT needs to speak with one voice. Need for a more collegial and shared approach to responsabillities in COTAMBA. Assure Regional/Local Authorities (Government) appropriation in the early stages. Avoid a long and bureaucratic process. HoA implication is very positive but process needs to implicate senior technical staff in UNCT agencies too. Improve dialogue and exchanges between UNCT
