Actions for Improved Planning & Priority Setting  Alignment of the planning process and priority setting in the region with the overall corporate Strategic Framework and the 5 Strategic Objectives:  SO1: Contribute to the eradication of hunger, food insecurity and malnutrition  SO2: Increase and improve provision of goods and service from agriculture, forestry and fisheries in a sustainable manner NERC-32 For a Resilient and a Food Secure Region 4 4

Actions for Improved Planning & Priority Setting  SO3: Reduce Rural Poverty  SO4: Enable more inclusive and efficient agricultural and food systems at local, national and international levels  SO5: Increase the resilience of livelihoods to threats and crises  Corporate Programmes Monitoring Board (CPMB) established to provide strategic direction, oversight and coordination and continuously review the delivery mechanisms NERC-32 For a Resilient and a Food Secure Region 5 5

Actions for Improved Planning & Priority Setting  Completion of Country Programming Frameworks (CPFs) for 17 countries in the region  Formulation of Regional Initiatives anchored in the New Strategic Framework  that address major challenges based on CPFs and Regional Priority Framework  Mapping and securing consistency between CPFs, the Regional Initiatives and the new Strategic Objectives NERC-32 For a Resilient and a Food Secure Region 6 6

Actions for Improved DOs Network in NENA  Review of the technical skill-mix at the regional level and in DOs of the region to align human resources capabilities to the strategic priorities set out in CPFs and the Regional Initiatives  New positions established in the areas of Strategic Planning, natural Resources management, gender, Investment, partnership and communication, southsouth cooperation  Several JPO positions: Policy, Agro-Industry; Water  Effective succession planning of FAO Representatives NERC-32 For a Resilient and a Food Secure Region 7 7

Actions for Improved DOs Network in NENA  Establishment of Deputy FAO Representative positions in countries with high potential for large field programmes (funded by extra-budgetary resources)  Methodical Review of the Organizational Design of Country Offices and strengthening their capacity through alignment of their programmes and structures NERC-32 For a Resilient and a Food Secure Region 8 8

Actions for Improved DOs Network in NENA  Strengthening the Regional Office to promote greater strategic management and oversight, in terms of programmes and administrative compliance, of country offices in the NENA region NERC-32 For a Resilient and a Food Secure Region 9 9

Integrated Delivery Model  The decentralization process, including the integration of emergency and development activities, is now effective in all countries of the region with the exception of Syria  The Regional Offices and Sub-regional Offices are playing the leading role in CPFs and programmes formulations and backstopping. NERC-32 For a Resilient and a Food Secure Region 10 10

Integrated Delivery Model  The Sub-regional Office for the Gulf Cooperation Council States and Yemen is fully operational, and is providing backstopping to several projects in the subregion.  The Regional Office has met the Fund mobilization target for the biennium of USD 100 Million  The Regional Office used all its allocation from the technical cooperation program for the biennium NERC-32 For a Resilient and a Food Secure Region 11 11

Challenges  Two principal challenges:  Adequate skilled technical staff at the country level to upscale programmes and secure FAO’s responsiveness to country needs  FAO programmes in the region remain dependent on traditional funding sources and resource mobilization from within the region is limited NERC-32 For a Resilient and a Food Secure Region 12 12

Guidance sought from the Conference  Support the actions being taken to strengthen the alignment of activities to the established priorities and strategic objectives  Encourage funding from the region for regional programmes, including through the regional solidarity trust fund NERC-32 For a Resilient and a Food Secure Region 13 13

Guidance sought from the Conference  Support the conduct of methodical organisational design reviews to strengthen the capacity of country offices  Endorse the measures pursued to reinforce the capabilities within the Regional Office and the decentralized network NERC-32 For a Resilient and a Food Secure Region 14 14
