  34. 34. During all this projects, working with different communities, I felt that I “opened” different doors and in a way I raised a lot of expectations for the future among the people who I worked with, this was why I decided to transform my report in a picture presentation showed on the 25th January in Unesco Office, so I could shared with project and program officers my feedback about what I saw and experienced in the field. Not being a UN staff, my position was really privileged because I maintained an independence that generated flexibility. My position was a mediator but also a implementer along with other partners in the projects. I left many “seeds” that will die if the is no one to water them. In my opinion based in what I saw many times there isn´t a clear long term and sustainable plan for the field. One week and weekends trainings is not enough. The effective implementers, they need to be monitorised and accompanied. Also, one day assessments are not real, there has to be an implication and involvement do have a clear idea of what is going on. Once again, I felt there is a huge gap between the projects designed in the office and what really happens in the field. And is in between that everything happens. What I can recommend or suggested based in what I experienced is that there should be more sharing results and linked projects, so a new project can potentialize the previous one and vice- versa. Without this connection is just a succession of projects and not a clear mission. Maybe this apparently easy practical-based process is an Utopia, because all UN agencies have to maintain a complex theorical burocracy and has to be the governmental partners, the ones that implement. Once again, the role of a mediator is really urgent, to avoid waste of funding, project and program officer´s energy, time and effort!
