Programme Phases


In addition to due diligence activities for the implementation phase, the 15 months inception phase ( which started on 01 July 2017) is to allow for further diagnostic and programme preparation work and the establishment of robust governance structures. At the end of the inception phase an internal performance review will be done, to allow for necessary adjustments to the programmatic approach and arrangements prior to taking on the full load of activities.


The 43 months implementation phase (starting 1 December 2018) shall consist of interventions that respond to what came out of the inception phase. These interventions will be set out clearly in execution plans indicating timelines, resource allocation, performance targets and indicators. The governance structures of the programme will approve the execution plan and monitor on an on-going basis in accordance with the TORs.
