As a follow up of 2 previous consultation workshops (first: Countries only, Second: Countries and Agencies), this meeting will offer the last consultation opportunity for all Pacific SIDS countries and the relevant Agencies and national stakeholders to discuss the GEF Pacific Island 2 Island (I2I) Program. Pacific Countries and the Agencies will present their latest thinking on the program in support of the national priorities and together explore how to move the program towards work program inclusion.
In addition, GEF Secretariat will introduce the new Country Support Program initiative -- Country Factsheets -- to provide the recipient countries up-to-date data and information on resource utilization and to enable the OFPs to make future programming decisions based on the remaining resources and effectively manage portfolio performance. Thailand OFP team will present their robust internal mechanism in managing GEF project implementation progress, capturing lessons and tracking the actual project outcome towards the GEF Results framework. All participating countries will have a chance to share their internal process and ask any questions.
