Activity Synopsis (ID# 41088) (Hide Synopsis)

Objective(s) 1. To constitute the PSC, discuss about main technical and substantive areas, the anticipated activities, the work plan and the ways forward including defining the mandate and composition of inter-sectorial working group.
2. To present the main findings and recommendations resulting from the inception phase 
Output/Results - The Agenda of the meeting was approved and followed without any modifications;
- The mandate and operational modalities of the PSC were approved;
- It was agreed to extend the SC representation to other institutions and to decide on its composition before each PSCM depending on the issues at stake. However, due to multitude of I/NGOs active in the field, the concrete and practical modalities of their engagement was not agreed upon, therefore it was proposed that partner institutions will give a careful consideration to the issue and provide the project team with a list of Institutions to be invited or some alternative opinions;
- It was agreed that the concept of Inter-Institutional WG and the respective ToRs stand as they are. Composition and the membership of the WG are subject to decision making with partner institutions. Similarly as with the representation in the SC, a careful consideration will be provided by the project team and partner institutions, to the representation of various institutions, especially of the I/NGOs, in the WG. It was agreed that the representation of institutions in WG meetings/activities needs to contribute with meaningful expert discussions and advice to the project implementation, depending on the issues at stake;
- It was agreed to have a selection of locations of the three pilot CPD desks, only after having a full set of criteria developed by CPD and AP. The criteria that will be proposed by two institutions will be merged afterwards, to have the best solution, by giving priority to CPD suggestions;
- It was agreed to hold the next SCM in October. The preliminary set date is the 11 October. 
Conclusions/Follow Up - Follow up communication via and email bilateral meetings will be held by the project team and partner institutions, in order to come to final decisions about
o representation of I/NGOs in SC,
o representation of various institutions and I/NGOs in the Inter-Institutional WG;
- Official letters will be sent by the project team to the heads of the main institutions participating in the WG, to select their experts as representatives in the WG;
- Follow up communication via email and bilateral meetings will be held by the project team, CPD and AP to come to the decision on the locations where the three pilot CPD desks will be established;
- The preparations for the next SCM will be made by the project team, which will follow up in the due time with invitations and other relevant documents.
