Project implementation committees
A multi-stakeholder project
The 12 lead agencies coordinate, facilitate and support implementation of the activities for each theme in their territories. They were identified and appointed by their respective territorial authorising officers.
For each territory and theme, the role of the lead agency mainly consists of:
- facilitating discussions and ensuring coordination with that theme’s partners (multi-stakeholder discussions, joint design of actions, partner support, sharing information with partners, holding territorial technical workshops),
- monitoring action implementation (monitor activities, support territorial partners, identify synergies between the theme’s activities, identify cross-sector opportunities),
- drafting technical and financial reports on the activities in the territory on each theme along with informational materials about the project.
The project team focal points within each lead agency are the PROTEGE-funded facilitators.
