Brazil - Energy and Mineral Sector Strengthening Project (Inglês)

Ratings of the Energy and Mineral Sector Strengthening Project for Pakistan were as follows: outcome was moderately satisfactory, Bank performance was satisfactory, and monitoring and evaluation quality was substantial. Some of the lessons learned include: a flexible TA project design can allow for continuous overarching borrower support when shifting priorities is a constant. This is particularly important for a middle-income country willing to borrow for policy TA. It allows for the addition and/or substitution of new activities based on the understanding that the overall broad objectives remain constant. It is particularly important for a sector, and technology, which are evolving at an increasingly faster pace, where it is unclear what knowledge will be needed soon. It also allows for timely knowledge intervention needed to address unexpected crises. Therefore, any changes in project activities based on new demands and changing priorities do not require changes in the PDO, the PDO indicators, nor its components. In the case of Brazil, when multiple implementation agencies are involved, having a central PIU coordinating activities (as opposed to implementing themselves) improves ownership, plus the project’s progress and achievements. In the case of the META Project, there were more than 70 terms of reference implemented under the project by the MME and eight other institutions. Implementation improved at an almost highly satisfactory pace when each institution implemented its own procurement activities, and the central PIU acted in a coordinating and supporting role, including creating guidelines and evaluating results, rather than execution. In the case of Brazil, projects at the federal level where the loan is spent as part of the regular ministerial (or agency) budget, it is important to size the loan, and duration of the project, based on the ministerial/agency spending caps at the beginning of the Brazilian fiscal year. Brazilian law prohibits departmental overspending (where employees can be jailed) and issuing bidding documents without 100 percent secure financing. The latter is more important because even if the department is promised a topup later in the fiscal year, that assurance is not enough to allow for bidding.
