Background: On 16-18 November, multi-stakeholder delegations from GFF frontrunner countries and second wave countries gathered to exchange experiences and lessons learned. This exchange included discussions on how to structure effective country platforms that are representative, flexible and agile, transparent and accountable, whilst also able to guide the development of robust investment cases and a mobilization of financing for implementation. The report of this meeting is forthcoming from the World Bank.
As a one-day pre-curser to the GFF Learning Meeting, a meeting was held with CS on November 14. This CS pre-meeting aimed to provide a forum for discussion and exchange among CS organizations from GFF front runner and second wave countries and generate recommendations for the GFF Learning Meeting on optimizing CS engagement in country platforms, and in the GFF more broadly. The meeting brought together 45 CS representatives from 13 countries – including 10 of the 12 Global Financing Facility (GFF) countries. All documents related to the CS meeting are available here.
