Burkina Faso - Third Phase of the Community‐Based Rural Development Project (English)

Ratings for the Third Phase of the Community‐Based Rural Development (CBRD) Project for Burkina Faso were as follows: outcome was moderately satisfactory; Bank performance was moderately unsatisfactory; and monitoring and evaluation (M and E) quality was substantial. Some lessons learned included: Community driven development (CDD) and local development projects should clarify whether they aim for general poverty reduction, decentralization, economic development, or community patrimony management (natural capital). In this case, despite the strong focus that was announced in the project appraisal document (PAD) on national resources management (NRM) and SLM, the project has financed mostly local development, access to public services (education, health), and capacity building for the decentralization process. CDD projects can only achieve results at scale if there are decentralized capacities able to implement and maintain. the success of CBRD raises the question on what the barrier for development are and what is the most efficient way to remove them. The principal limitation seen in phase three was the decision to develop a new results framework, without considering the achievement of the prior phases. This has made it difficult to evaluate the contributions of phase three to the overall program. Thus, for multiphase projects like the CBRD, the phases should build upon each other.
