Project management structure

The overall management structure is summarised in this organigramme of the project.

A Steering Committee composed of 6 members, donor representatives and project partners oversees project implementation and is assisted in scientific matters by a Scientific Advisory Group composed of a pool of around 20 international scientists. The Scientific Advisory Group functions in an advisory capacity and is responsible for ensuring scientific rigour and advice on training needs.

Overall project coordination is undertaken at the interregional level by an ad hoc Project Coordination Agency. The agency's role is to provide general administrative and financial oversight of project implementation, backstopping to the local partners, ensure scientific coherence and pertinence of project activities and consolidate annual progress reports to the donors. For each region (the Guianas, Central Africa and the Pacific) I Regional Focal Point Organisation (RFPO) acts as the main implementing partner for the project.
