This document captures lessons learned from CLASP’s involvement in the development of the S&L strategies and the design and implementation of the intervention projects, and offers recommendations for improving future projects. The first section, Summary of Work, describes our scoping and findings for each individual country. The second section, Lessons Learned, discusses observations from the field and opportunities to improve project implementation.
Some key findings include the observations that:
- Industry is a valuable and interested resource, but underutilized and not often consulted.
- Governments and partners conceptualize S&L programs individually, rather than as foundations of a holistic approach to market transformation, to be aligned with other broader activities and interventions.
- Manufacturers support global and regional market transformation programs built on product performance and testing, such as awards programs.
