ECB Project Consortia Prepare Final Year Consortium Engagement Plans
Published on 13 June 2012
On May 15-16 in Nairobi, Kenya, the ECB Project's consortium in the Horn of Africa completed its annual Consortium Engagement Plan (CEP) workshop. Every year, each consortium produces a CEP to clearly define the joint activities to be undertaken over the following twelve months. This year consortia are planning for the final year of this phase of the project, which draws to a close in August 2013.
The Horn of Africa workshop included representatives from each of the ECB Project agencies collaborating in the region, and colleagues from the Assessment Capacities Project (ACAPS) and People in Aid. After agreeing on the common priorities, the consortium defined joint activities such as the socialisation of the five principles of accountability to the UN, governments and donors, delivering a simulation package to bolster preparedness across two countries and collaboration with ACAPS to improve needs assessment data collection.
The workshop agenda also included a session in which participants reviewed the successes and challenges of collaboration over the past twelve months*, and another exploring the opportunities for collaboration after 2013.
The Bolivia consortium also held their workshop on April 16-17, and drew up a new Engagement Plan focusing on developing a sustainable model for the consortium post-2013.
*A new guide ECB Guide to Building a Country Consortium – key factors for success is under review and expected to be released in the coming months.
