Project Status: Implementation

It will do by (i) supporting implementation of a series of stakeholder engagement events throughout the country, facilitated by a team of experts, aimed at gathering input for the NMP and ensuring the the policy reflects a wide range of expectations and sensitivities, (ii) expert technical round tables on key themes, to identify concrete SMART indicators and responsible entities to take forward the NMP, (iii) formulation of a project profile aimed at making actionable at least one priority action identified in the engagement process, and (iv) supporting a broad communication and transparency effort to ensure the policy is known and supported by key constituencies.
