New governance model for the GIMB NFP 2018-2025

The GIMB governance is composed of a multitude of actors in order to coordinate national efforts for the implementation of all the measures of the National Framework Plan (NFP). The links between the different NFP actors are shown in Figure 1 above. The ministries involved are responsible for setting up the High Council, the Executive Committee and the focal point teams. The ministries involved may be invited to the High Council as appropriate. The High Council communicates its decisions and visions to the Coordination Office and the Executive Committee. The Executive Committee and the Coordination Office work together and organise working groups. The members of the Executive Committee exchange with the focal point teams.
