TCP/EGY/3302: Monitoring the implementation of the "Sustainable agricultural development strategy towards 2030"
Mission to Cairo, Egypt: November 2011

Mission objectives
Within the framework of the project TCP/EGY/3302 develop with national partners of the Ministry of Agriculture and Land Reclamation a detailed road map for the implementation of the project and in particular of the capacity building programme aimed at strengthening the capacities of the M&E Unit established by the Ministry in Result-based monitoring and management of the Agricultural Strategy Towards 2030.


Project calendar
The political instability is responsible for a two months delay in the implementation of the project but after the discussions held with national partners we agreed that if no major obstacles persist, the project could still be closed on schedule (i.e., December 2012).


Road map for project implementation
A detailed road map for the implementation of the project with a focus on the capacity building component of the project has been agreed with the national counterparts. The national counterparts also requested that the risk management component be postponed until the political situation is stabilized in the country.


The Terms of Reference of the international expert to be recruited for the delivery of the capacity building programme have been prepared and three CVs have been collected.
