First Africa RISING Program Coordination Team meeting held in Ghana

Comprising three linked regions projects, Africa RISING has put in place several integration and learning mechanisms at the overall program level. These include a monitoring and evaluation project led by IFPRI and a communication activity led by ILRI.

An overall Program Coordination Team (PCT), with representatives from each region, provides advice and coordination across the three Projects.

The first PCT meeting was held alongside a series of West Africa meetings in Ghana in January 2013. This meeting looked into a number of important issues for the program: progress with regional work plans, monitoring and evaluation plan, status of communication activities, setting up an external science advisory committee, the process of updating the program document on a regular basis, alignment with Feed the Future indicators and a series of program-wide activities which will bring members from the three regional project components in the course of 2013.
