The Partnership Plan is designed to span two to three years. However, each year (at each assessment of implementation), the Focal Points (FPs) and the Partnership decide whether to update and revise the plan.
Within the implementation process, the In-Country Facilitator and FPs can (depending on government needs) carry out further needs assessments and consultations with key stakeholders. These assessments/consultations should assess evolving needs, changing conditions or opportunities to increase ambition. Any results and/or outcomes can be used to update the Partnership Plan.
This reflection exercise should include the review of all relevant ministries for NDC implementation. The ministry responsible for gender equality and/or women and social affairs should also take part. It could also be timed to correlate with periodic NDC revisions.
"Every time a donor or multilateral donor comes to our country and asks us what to do, we show them the Partnership Plan and say this is what we want to do."
