57. Clarification was sought as to whether the project could be resubmitted. It was explained that the recommendation to reject was a red light by the PPRC but that the Operational Polices and Guidelines left it open for countries to resubmit a proposal that had been rejected. However, it was the understanding of the Board that the project should not be re-submitted to the Adaptation Fund Board.
58. Having considered the comments and recommendations of the Projects and Programme Review Committee, the Adaptation Fund Board decided to:
(a) Reject the project concept, as supplemented by the additional information provided by the United Nations Development Programme (UNDP) in response to the request made by the technical review;
(b) Request the secretariat to transmit to the UNDP the observations made by the secretariat and by the members of the Project and Programme Review Committee on the proposal when discussing it at its third meeting; and
(c) Request that UNDP transmit the observations referred to under paragraph (b) above to the Government of India.
