To provide a venue for discussions on project implementation progress, issues and concerns and share good practices on project management and achievement of outputs, the Secretariat organized the “Annual Technical Workshop (ATW) for Project Management and Performance Review” in two sessions on 23 and 24 June 2021.
The workshop aimed to revisit the current year’s achievements, reflect and share lessons learned from each project, successful cases/practices, and explore opportunities for project development (potential in-country or regional projects) among Implementing Agencies (IAs). The workshop also presented the indicative work plan/framework relative to medium and long-term AFoCO project portfolio and project management profile.
The workshop invited 13 National Focal Points, one (1) project manager and one (1) project staff from each IA, of 17 on-going projects, including 5 projects under inception arrangements.
Mr. Ricardo Calderon, Executive Director of the AFoCO Secretariat, thanked the National Focal Points, IAs and the respective project teams who attended the workshop for sharing valuable experiences and lessons learned from project implementation. He encouraged the IAs and project staff to remain productive despite the tough situations brought about by the pandemic.
