Panama - Sustainable Production Systems and Conservation of Biodiversity Project (English)

Ratings for the Sustainable Production Systems and Conservation of Biodiversity Project for Panama were as follows: outcome and Bank performance was satisfactory and monitoring and evaluation (M and E) quality was substantial. Some lessons learned include: the endowment fund (EF) illustrates how with strong government buy-in, a moderate amount of seed funding can be leveraged to build up a much larger fund for conservation. It is critical to mobilize multiple, diverse sources of conservation funding. Subprojects can serve as a critical proof-of-concept to jumpstart public and private investment in an innovative solution to a challenge. Multi-sector approaches to biodiversity conservation can play a critical role in capturing livelihood benefits for low-income and marginalized groups and diversifying the base for conservation financing. The project can have better demonstrated its positive impacts on livelihoods and inclusion if it had included socio-economic, intermediate indicators. Monitoring and evaluation strategies for biodiversity outcomes need careful assessment during project preparation.
