Republic of Yemen - Technical Assistance Project (English)

This is the Implementation Completion Report (ICR) for the Technical Assistance Project in Yemen. The objective of the project was to improve staff capability in key departments of the Central Planning Organization (CPO) and to establish procedures that would strengthen CPO's operations and its working relationship with other ministries and agencies. Bank's performance was satisfactory. Borrower's performance was satisfactory. The key lessons learned were as follows: (i) during project implementation, grants could become available and displace International Development Association (IDA) resource earmarked for specific project activities; (ii) institutional development components of Technical Assistance (TA) projects should be contingent upon government agreement on a detailed institutional plan for the ministry or agency concerned; (iii) in view of rapidly changing conditions and generally slow implementation, TA projects should be kept as small and focussed as possible to avoid long implementation periods; and (iv) agreement should be reached with the government that procurement and recruitment steps should be completed during the 9-12 months while effectiveness is pending.
