This Chair’s Proposal includes the proposed activities for the next biennium and an indicative budget which would be a key reference to ensure that the programme of work is based on realistic budgetary assumptions. 

An overview of the activities that would be carried out in parallel is also provided to show the level of workload expected if the proposed programme of work is approved. A number of matters that still need to be considered and discussed by OEWG members are presented in the red text below the proposed activities.

This document will be discussed at the next MYPoW OEWG meeting on 2 May (14.00-17.00 at IFAD), where consensus is expected to be reached on the activities for the next MYPoW, including rationale, objectives, expected outcomes and process of each workstream. The agenda and other background documents of the meeting will be circulated in due course.

In preparation of the 2 May meeting, OEWG members are strongly encouraged to consult informally among interested stakeholders to clarify the objectives and outcomes of preferred proposals. The MYPoW OEWG Chair is available to participate in such discussions upon request.
