Vietnam - Central Highlands Poverty Reduction Project (English)

Ratings of Central Highlands Poverty Reduction Project for Vietnam were as follows: outcome was moderately satisfactory, Bank performance was moderately satisfactory, and monitoring and evaluation quality was modest. Some of the lessons learned include: (i) Investment Project Financing-type financing can effectively complement programmatic support for enhanced outcomes; (ii) Inter departmental coordination across different ministries is challenging without formal arrangements (and financing) in place; (iii) Community supervision of infrastructure must be adequately paired with appropriate technical oversight of contractors; (iv) Specialized community engagement and facilitation support, which requires relevant language skills, is essential to reach the most isolated Ethnic Minorities (EM) communities; (v) Carefully consider the type, ambition and methods of measuring results for multi-sectoral/CDD operations, particularly in complex environments; and (vi) There are limitations and risks in using complex, and costly, difference in differences impact evaluations for Community Driven Development (CDD) operations.
