Selecting an In-Country Facilitator

Topic Progress:
During the scoping mission, the Scoping Lead shares the process by which the country identifies an in-country facilitator that coordinates the implementation of the Partnership Plan and provides operational and coordination support between the Focal Points and the Partnership.

Three options exist for the facilitator:

  1. A government ministry or agency;
  2. A government ministry or agency, with embedded facilitation support from the Partnership; or
  3. One or more IPs or agencies chosen by the FPs.

The facilitator may be decided at any point between Stage 1 and Stage 3 per government decision.

A standard Terms of Reference (TOR) outlines the responsibilities of the facilitator, which can be amended by the government to reflect specific country contexts.
