  1. WCA 2009 Result Management PlanBy: Virginia Cameroon Bamba Zoumana Mohamed Tounessi Project Retreat 4-5 November 2009 Ouaguadougou

  2. Presentation Outline • Regional Overview • Structural Characteristics of the Regional Portfolio & Project Implementation Performance • IFAD’s Vision for the Region • Divisional Management Plan

  3. Regional Overview of West and Central Africa • 24 countries of which: • 5 represent the lowest rankings in the Human Development Index • 13 are in the bottom 22 in the Human Development Index • 5 countries face civil war or conflict • 3 are only just emerging from conflict • 1/3rd of the area of WCA is located in the arid or semi-arid zone: drought and famine are common

  4. Regional Overview of West and Central Africa • 550 million people (Oct. 2006) • 52% women • More than 70% live in rural areas • High annual population growth rates: 2% - 3.5% • Agriculture provides more than 70% of the basic needs and incomes of rural people Source: FAOSTAT 2006

  5. Rural and Rural Poor Populations in West and Central Africa • Majority of people in WCA live in rural areas: 350 Million, 2006 • More than 70% of the rural population of WCA suffer from acute poverty (less than 1$/day) • Agriculture is the primary source of income in the region. Source: Rural Population, FAOSTAT, Rural Poverty Rates, INSD, EPCV, ESAM, CLSS, HCLS, ENBC & National Household Surveys

  6. Structural Characteristics of the Regional Portfolio • 50 financed projects in 20 countries. • Total financing about US$729 million, with cofinancing of about US$313 million. • The regional grant portfolio amounted to US$21.24 million: 15 large regional grants (US$18.49 million) and 19 small grants (US$2.75 million). • Cofinancing mobilized increased by 12% from US$291 million to US$313 million

  7. Project Implementation Performance • Of the 40 projects rated, 33 were classified as Not At Risk (NAR), 3 as Potential Problem Projects (PPPs) and 4 as Actual Problem Project (APPs). • There are currently 7 projects ‘at risk’ compared to 9 from the previous review period. • Low disbursement rates represent the most significant portfolio constraint • Share of projects with disbursement lag over 40% down to 22% from 27%.

  8. Loan and Grant Programme Priorities in WCA • Support the building of inclusive value chains and rural enterprises including access of the rural poor to technology and innovations to promote sustainable agricultural productivity and food security. • Access of rural households and enterprises to financial services and local, regional and international input-supply and output markets • Access to natural resources (especially land and water) and maintaining the quality of the resource base for agriculture in the context of climate change • Institutional development and capacity-building

  9. Divisional Management Plan • Better programme design • Better program implementation • Knowledge management and innovation • Partnership within & outside IFAD

  10. Better Programme Design • 4 result based COSOPs to be designed in 2009 • Use the CPMT approach to produce high quality COSOPs in harmony with the Paris declaration • Contribute to national and regional policy generation and transformation through partnership (IFPRI, FAO, OECD, etc.)

  11. KPI: 2009 Objective for COSOP in quality • % of COSOP rated satisfactory or better at entry------------------------------------------80% • % of COSOP rated satisfactory or better during implimentation according to client survey----------------------------------------80% • % of Country programmes rated satisfactory or better on adherence to Paris Aid Effectiveness according to Paris Declaration monitoring Group----------80%

  12. Better Program Design • 7/8 projects to the board in ’09 • Currently 11 projects in the pipeline at varying stages of design • Three criteria to determine the entry of new projects into the portfolio & design • Ensure robustness & quality of projects at entry • Maximum utilization of PBAS • Progressive reduction of number of projects in the regional portfolio to match resources: maximum of 1 project per country per PBA cycle

  13. Better Project Implementation • Areas of focus • Reduction and eventual removal of projects at risk • Reduction of implementation problems, especially relating to: • Disbursement rating • Counterpart funds • High operating costs • Governance/ corruption • Project management • Non performing service providers • Inefficient Mand E

  14. Better Project Implementation • Improve development effectiveness by: • Taking over supervision of projects: 3 projects directly supervised in 2006, 12 in 2007, 23 in 2008, 35 in 2009, all projects in 2010 • Increasing the country presence (Burkina Faso included in 2009) • Outposting of CPMs (starting with Senegal and Ghana in 2009; • Newly established portofolio suport unit • Divisional dashboard to monitor portfolio performance

  15. KPI: Country project implementation • Average time from project effectiveness to approval-----------------------------13 months • % of projects with supervision rating satisfactory or better (sup. Reports---80% • Project at risk -----------------------25% max

  16. Knowledge Management and Innovation • Expected Results: • Mainstreaming of KM in country programmes and projects starting with new projects and at mid-term review • Improving M&E (M&E regional grant) • Learning from field experiences (Scouting innovations through supervision)

  17. Knowledge Management and Innovation:Expected Results Continued… • Strengthening Fidafrique and linking to ES Africa • Improving the effectiveness of knowledge grants (Knowledge Grants: IITA Grants, Microfinance, Future focus on Rice, R&T, Millet/Sorghum) • Improving the skills of IFAD staff and partners in supervision, implementation support, innovation and KM

  18. Partnerships • Within IFAD • Closer cooperation with PF (Fidafrique, NEPAD, market access) • Systematized cooperation through joint programmes with FC, EC, EO (project information management, support implementation performance, policy) • External Partners • Professional organizations and Private Sector • Co Financers (AfDB, WB, BSF, OPEC, BOAD, IsDB, BADEA) • Policy support (OECD, IFPRI) • All above: within the context of the Paris Declaration

  19. Risk Management • Civil Strife • Increase project pipeline to ensure delivery • Poor resource management • Enforce submissions of project audit • Introduce continuous audit processes where risk is high • Include component on corruption in project design

  20. To be discussed with Virgina
