Q&A Session

A Q&A session about the MTR took place on March 14 (see video recording). Key new information shared:

  • Most progamme information can be found on the website (About us / accountability) and IATI data is available through (search for "right2grow")
  • Previous experience with Dutch government funded programmes is an asset, but not a requirement
  • Consultants that can start implementing the assignment early (and therefore complete ahead of the timeline) have a preference
