Comoros - Electricity Sector Recovery Project (Inglês)

Ratings of the Electricity Sector Recovery Project for Comoros were as follows: outcome was satisfactory, Bank performance was satisfactory, and monitoring and evaluation quality was substantial. Some of the lessons learned include: (i) The analytical engagement of the World Bank along with strong client buy-in as the basis for interventions is particularly important in fragile and low-capacity countries; (ii) Simple, well-targeted interventions based on proven solutions to critical operational challenges can have significant positive impacts within a short time frame, even in the most difficult country context; (iii) If adequately communicated and targeted, measures to reduce electricity theft and nonpayment can yield large financial benefits without triggering significant opposition from vested interests; (iv) Women’s groups can be effective in fostering positive change by appealing to social norms and individual responsibilities, especially in an Fragility, Conflict, and Violence (FCV) context with weak enforcement of property rights and chronically poor payment behavior for public services; (v) In fragile and low-capacity environments, any activities aiming at sector governance reforms have to be carefully targeted and accompanied with close and highly adaptive implementation support; (vi) If it is not explicitly addressed, the lack of provisions for IDA-funded warrantee contracts and maintenance services to outlast a project’s closing date can become a major threat to project sustainability; (vii) Most FCV countries require teams to carefully and pragmatically consider the political economy implications of the projects’ proposed institutional arrangements and budget allocations; (viii) The FCV context may require teams to consider alternative procurement arrangements; (ix) Effective South-South knowledge sharing can help teams dramatically reduce the lead time needed to develop the tailored services and solutions and find the often highly specific expertise needed to support our clients; (x) In an FCV context, the intervention of resident experts can make the difference between project success and failure.
