IMPACT working groups
As per its Terms of Reference, IMPACT may establish Working Groups to address and advise IMPACT participants on specific issues relating to its goal and objectives, including the coordination of country focused initiatives. Working Groups will be lead by a Chairperson, selected by the General Meeting. The Chairperson must be a participant. For the beginning, 5 Working Groups have been established as outlined below.
Working Groups must ensure that participants and invited experts have the appropriate expertise. As long as this is ensured, Working Groups’ composition will aim at ensuring representation of the different stakeholders. The Planning Group and the IMPACT Secretariat will have to ensure that these principles are met.
Each Working Group will develop proposed work plans, report and submit proposals to the General Meeting through the Planning Group.
