Iraq - Emergency Textbook Provision Project (Inglês)

Ratings for the Iraq Emergency Textbook Provision Project were as follows: outcomes were satisfactory, the risk to development outcome was significant, the Bank performance was satisfactory, and the Borrower performance was satisfactory. Some lessons learned included: 1) Assessing and aligning the capacity of the implementing institutions with the implementation requirements of the project early on is critical, particularly when government systems and structures are being used for the first time - this also requires keeping project objectives and design simple; 2) Maintaining a focus on the longer term goal of building capacity, while simultaneously aiming to achieve quick and visible results is essential; 3) Building the institutional base for capacity to be sustained, as opposed to focusing on a small group of people, is difficult initially, but fruitful in the long run; 4) Emergency projects which are simple in design call for a greater emphasis on supervision funding as the speed involved in preparation requires close support and supervision during early implementation; 5) Securing in-country supervision when it is not possible to supervise on the ground directly is important to ensure fiduciary responsibility; and 6) A Quality at Entry Assessment (QEA) contributes significantly to applying lessons learned in the assessment to the project. Some of those lessons can even be acted on during implementation. QEA lessons learned from this project included: (i) project simplicity, flexibility and innovation are appropriate - as for most (post-) conflict situations; and (ii) the use of an ad hoc advisory committee is worth considering under volatile conditions where standard Bank operating procedures will not work.
