Morocco - Judicial Performance Enhancement for Service to Citizen Project (Mahkamati) (English)

Ratings for the Judicial Performance Enhancement for Service to Citizen Project (“Mahkamati”) for Morocco were as follows: outcomes were highly unsatisfactory, the risk to development outcome was negligible, the Bank performance was unsatisfactory, and the Borrower performance was also unsatisfactory. Some lessons learned included: First, the client needs to own the project. Without ownership, a project will not be successfully implemented. When the Bank is driven by internal considerations when it comes to the modality or the timing of a project, ownership can be undermined. Project design and timing need to reflect the government’s reform agenda and sequence. If the reform agenda is in a flux, it is important to find the right moment when alignment with the client’s vision can be ascertained.Second, the project needs to be informed by political economy considerations. This is key to avoid a design that may technically reflect international best practice, but is disconnected from reality. Awareness of political economy aspects is also crucial to correctly time a project.Third, the project needs to be ready for implementation. While many considerations may affect the timing of Board and government approval, a project that is not ready for implementation should not be submitted.Fourth, ignoring weak project performance and passivity in addressing challenges will not lead to improvements.When a project does not perform, there is a need for all parties involved to acknowledge it, to identify the causes, and to address them. This is not only the responsibility of the client or the task team, but also World Bank management responsibility. The recommendation is therefore for all parties to be proactive in identifying and addressing shortcomings, for the World Bank to be supportive of the client in this effort, and for World Bank management to nurture a culture where task teams are encouraged to communicate performance shortcomings and to jointly address them.
