During the scoping mission, the Scoping Lead shares the process for the member country to identify an In-Country Facilitator.
The In-Country Facilitator will:
- coordinate the implementation of the Partnership Plan (see Stage 3);
- provide operational and coordination support between the Focal Points (FPs) and the Partnership.
There are three options for the In-country Facilitator:
- A government ministry or agency;
- A government ministry or agency, with embedded facilitation support from the Partnership;
- One or more Implementing Partners (IPs) or agencies chosen by the FPs.
The member country may identify the In-Country Facilitator at any point between Stage 1 and Stage 3.
A standard In-Country Facilitator Terms of Reference (TOR) outlines the responsibilities of the In-Country Facilitator. The government can amend the TOR to reflect its specific country contexts.
