SET-UP AND PLANNING
The project document for the programme was successfully formulated, including the identification of recipient countries and
beneficiaries. The subprogramme became operationally active in March 2020 and a project task force was also established.

CHALLENGES AND LESSONS LEARNED
Due to COVID-19, challenges faced are:

  • A delay in the overall delivery of the sub-programme by the expected NTE is not foreseen.
  • Travel and movement restrictions.
  • Delay in foreseen recruitment of field staff expected to support implementation of the sub-programme.

Mitigation of the challenges:

  • Remote undertaking of inception work related to scoping analysis and collection of information and data related to existing situation and ongoing initiatives at country level.
  • Strong support from country and regional offices, and in close coordination with the HQ and regional COVID-19 task forces.
