Republic of Yemen - Public Works Project (English)

Project outcome is regarded as satisfactory, with project sustainability as highly likely. World Bank performance was satisfactory overall while Borrower performance was highly satisfactory. However, some delays in processing payments to contractors remained an issue which the Borrower needs to resolve. Key lessons learned from the project include: Adoption of an appropriate project design supported by good implementation arrangements can deliver substantial benefits. This would include detailed, adequate, and up-front arrangements to handle human relations (especially coordination procedures between government agencies and ministries), as well as employing competent project staff and providing the right salary and incentives. Requiring measurable local stakeholder participation helps to target results and ensure sustainability, but it also requires appropriate skills and effort. It is unnecessary to create a bureacracy to deliver substantial development benefits on a large number of sites. Good and transparent business procedures lower costs and build up institutional capacity and development. This would include the recognition that small contracts require their own set of simple and straightforward procedures and documents.
