TARGET AUDIENCE: Program Managers, Program Coordinators and others performing in this role
Several Development Projects are being implemented across different sectors in Nigeria. Most of these projects are implemented with loans from International Development Partners to be repaid by the Government of Nigeria. Our research indicates a majority of these projects need to optimize the achievement of Project Development Objectives. One of the reasons attributable to this challenge is the implementer’s inability to link project outputs to outcome and meeting up with the requirements of the Development Partners.
The Borrowers Project Implementation Completion Report (BCR) is the implementing agency’s report on the implementation experience and results achievement of the project. The BCR is a key input to the World Bank’s Implementation Completion Report (ICR).
The World Bank’s main objective for a Borrowers Project Implementation Completion Report (BCR) is to learn from the experiences of borrowers and Executing Agencies (EAs) in implementing projects. The lessons learned are used to improve the performance of ongoing and future projects. The BCR is also used as a measure of the Development Partners’ effectiveness and as an input to the Country’s Strategy Formulation. For this reason, Executing Agencies should develop the capacity to develop Project Implementation Completion Reports. This program provides an opportunity for such Executing Agencies to learn how to complete the BCR.
After attending this training, participants should be able to:
- Understand the Objective and Scope of Borrowers Project Implementation Completion Report
- Be able to link result (output, outcome and impact) driven approaches to the Borrowers Project Implementation Completion Report
- Understand the roles and responsibilities of Stakeholders in developing the Borrowers Project Implementation Completion Report
- Be able to fully conceptualize the terms of reference for the preparation of the Borrowers Project Implementation Completion Report
- Be able to set in motion processes that will lead to positive Implementation Completion Report.
