Experience Note: Lake Chad: Tackling Implementation Challenges Early On
This note covers how the Lake Chad Basin GEF project has responded to initial delays in
project implementation. First, the project identified and address weaknesses in inadequate project
management at the level of the Project Management Unit. Second, the project addressed the need for
more inclusive involvement of the regional basin institution, the Lake Chad Basin Commission (LCBC) in
project implementation, as well as the need to build its institutional and fiduciary capacity. Finally, the project has improved coordination among the two implementing agencies (World Bank and UNDP), the executing agency (UNOPS), the regional basin institution (LCBC) and the Project Management Unit (PMU).
