Pakistan - Montreal Protocol Ozone Depleting Substances Phase Out Project (English)

Ratings for the Montreal Protocol Ozone Depleting Substances (ODS) Phase Out Project of Pakistan were as follows: outcomes were satisfactory, the risk to development outcome was low or negligible, the Bank performance was satisfactory, and the Borrower performance was satisfactory. Some lessons learned included: 1) During the implementation of the umbrella projects (where there were more than one enterprises involved) it would have been more appropriate that the selection of machinery be based on each individual enterprises' technical and working capability so that the equipment supplied met their working environment; 2) In projects that involve funding the private sector to transform a market, it is advantageous to have some counterpart contribution to ensure ownership; 3) In cases where subproject implementation was deliberately stalled because of a lack of enterprise commitment, it would have been helpful to the Financial Intermediary (FI) to have a "stick" to encourage enterprises to move forward in implementation; 4) The lessons drawn from the Pakistan ODS Phase-out Project support the findings that sustainable phaseout hinges upon Government policy action early on and a project design that promotes Government involvement in implementation through capacity building and other support measures; 5) Although an assessment of economic costs and benefits to the country to convert to non-ODS technology and to implement the MP is beyond the scope of this report, some broad conclusions can be made based on experiences from implementation of the ODS Project; 6) One important lesson learned was that a capacity needs assessment would have been helpful to determine what type of training NBP needed to ensure it was able to deliver on its obligations in the earlier stages of the project.
