Experience Note: Lessons-learned Reporting on Project Management Structure: WIO-LaB
The WIO-LaB project workplan is based upon the Nairobi Convention workplan. The synergy
between the project and the policy/programme level, provides an important advantage. Despite these
important advantages, it should be noted that the capacity of the focal points (technical, financial and human resources) for coordination of the different project activities, which cover a wide range of issues, may in cases be limited. A second challenge concerns the large diversity in the respective institutional, cultural and socio-economic settings of the respective countries. Apart from official structures, the WIOLaB PMU has furthermore established/supported a number of more informal structures for stakeholder consultation and involvement. Although the adopted structure builds upon the existing structure of the Nairobi Convention, the approach would generally be replicable in other situations.
