Title: Western and Central Africa


1
Western and Central Africa Portfolio Performance
Review July 2009 June 2010
Dakar, 09 November 2010
2
The IFAD Portfolio
  • 50 active projects in 21 countries.
  • Total IFAD financing US 800 million.
  • 13 partners are co-financing 33 projects with an
    additional (33) US 385 million to the IFAD
    financing.
  • The regional grant portfolio amounted to US
    23 million
  • 15 large regional grants (US20 million)
  • 20 small grants (US3 million)

3
IFAD Strategic Objectives (SO)
  • IFAD strategic objectives are pursued with
    projects channeled through Governments to
    producers and processors, their associations and
    local level institutions emphasising capacity
    building, participatory planning and
    implementation, with particular attention given
    to poorer women and youth.

4
Implementation Support Strategy
CPMs
  • Country Programme Managers represent IFAD at
    individual country levels with an average of 5
    projects per CPM. Greater emphasis being given to
    out-posted CPMs (existing, new and planned), and
    local knowledge through CPOs and in-country teams.

Supervision
  • IFAD direct supervision (48 projects or 96 of
    portfolio), increasing by 30 from the previous
    year).

Capacity Building
  • Grants are used to strengthen capacities,
    particularly ME, project and financial
    management and technical assistance for
    technology generation.
  • Regional Support team backstops CPMs, projects in
    design, implementation support and supervision.
    Where needed, continuous training for projects
    provided. Accra Action Plan and WCA Division
    Annual Retreat reviews implementation and
    knowledge sharing strategy agreed between WCA and
    all projects at the Regional Implementation
    Workshop (Accra, Nov 09).

Regional Support Team

Maturity of the Regional Portfolio
  • 42 (or 21 projects) are less than 3 years old.
  • 14 (or 7 projects) are above seven years old.
  • This demonstrates that rejuvenation of the
    portfolio is taking place.

Remaining Challenges

Risk Status and Main Areas of Concern
11
Six Projects at Risk
PRODER-K and PRODER-B Poor implementation
progress and sustainability BEING CLOSED
CHAD
PPRD-HG Poor implementation progress, management
and sustainability BEING CLOSED PACV II World
Bank (main financier) suspended the disbursements
GUINEA
PRODER Poor management
CONGO
PRAPO Poor management
DR CONGO
  • Pro-actively, WCA with West African Rural
    Foundation provided training sessions to fifty
    projects from 20 countries through five
    sub-regional workshops in Gambia, Benin, Mali,
    Cote d'Ivoire, and DR Congo building the capacity
    of all the portfolio and project
    staff, principally the project director and the
    financial controller as well as government
    official from Ministries of Agriculture and
    Finance.

12
Key Actions being taken to Improve Performance
Simple
  • Design simpler projects (fewer components),
    minimising risks in civil strife countries and
  • Simpler coordinated implementation arrangements.

Rigorous
  • More rigorous supervision and implementation
    support including customized training program for
    IFAD staff and projects.

Aggressive
  • More aggressive restructuring and closing of
    projects which do not take actions to improve.

Increase
  • Increased partnerships with local and bilateral
    institutions with demonstrated ability to obtain
    results in difficult countries.

13
To Conclude
Continued pro-activity in the following
Dynamic and proactive management at country
level strengthening and using CPMT better
management of country teams capacity building
(at IFAD and project level) coordinated approach
with partners.
Implementation is as key as design good COSOP
and design, with monitored implementation and
support assurance of implementation readiness
for successful project. Priority now good work
planning and budgeting, procurement planning.
Direct supervision and systematic implementation
support and continuous follow-up of project
activities with one main outcome achieving RI
(results and impact)!
