Organization and management of the IP
At FAO Headquarters
An interdepartmental task force - Programme Implementation Task Force (PITF) - acts as an interdisciplinary mechanism that brings together the various technical issues addressed within the programme. It also provides advice and technical support for the implementation of the activities.
The PITF is composed of technical staff from 10 services from the Sustainable Development Department, Agriculture Department and Economic and Social Department of FAO:

Activities are currently being carried out in Namibia, Uganda and Zambia. In each country a lead organization has the overall responsibility for implementation and monitoring of the programme and, in direct consultation with IP national partners, for activities locally and nationally. A National Coordinator has been hired in each country to coordinate and facilitate the day to day activities. Interdisciplinary task forces are responsible for planning activities and providing technical advice. See overview of lead agencies and collaborating partners in the countries.
The FAO Sub-regional Office (FAO-SAFR) collaborates in facilitating, co-ordinating and backstopping the interaction of various technical activities, and in ensuring the adequate exchange of information at the national and regional levels.
