Selecting Implementing Partners (IPs)

Topic Progress:
During development of the Partnership Plan, the Focal Points (FPs) develop a list of Implementing Partners (IPs). The IPs are responsible for implementing specific activities outlined in the Plan.

What are Implementing Partners?

IPs are any relevant organizations, irrespective of membership status with the NDC Partnership, that bring resources and skill-sets to the table, regardless of the source of funding.

The Partnership Plan records how each IP:

  • will contribute to NDC implementation;
  • what projects/programs or actions they will lead or support;
  • what resources (technical or financial) they can give;
  • how they will communicate with and work within the Partnership.

IPs may be added to the Plan throughout the engagement process and/or during revision or update processes.

Sharing the Partnership plan

Once the Partnership Plan has been developed and the list of partners identified by the government, the Scoping Lead, FPs, and In-Country Facilitator share these results with a wider group of stakeholders. These stakeholders include institutional, associate, other country members and stakeholders involved in the country’s NDC implementation.
