  • PRM project need to build synergies with other EU funded projects in northern Zone like Oikos project on women empowerment
  • For sustainability, the project should continue working communities, local government, national government and other partners to ensure best practices are shared accordingly as part of knowledge management.
  • The project needs to invest in print and TV/Radio communication to share the progress and success of the project. This can also act as a fundraising tool for PRM up scaling.
