When a member country submits a Request for Support Letter (RSL), the Scoping Lead circulates it across relevant members and schedules a follow-up briefing call.
Before circulating the RSL, the Scoping Lead talks to the government and in-country stakeholders to understand the context behind the request. Partnership members are invited to take part in these initial engagement conversations.
Next, the Scoping Lead and Focal Points of the country schedule a briefing call led by the government, for interested members to explain and discuss:
- initial areas of support for NDC implementation (as outlined in the Request for Support Letter);
- the way forward – including, where relevant, dates of upcoming scoping missions.
