Implementing the global agendas requires cooperation at all levels, particularly of different ministries as well as between authorities and other actors at national and subnational levels. The CPG proposes to support countries in the region to build their internal capacity to do so. A first step is to undertake a survey to better understand what are the areas requiring particular attention. After ascertaining the actual demand for support, the CPG will develop tailored knowledge products and services, and respond to country-specific requests for support. As a first step, a policy brief on coherence will be developed in close cooperation with the members of the Regional Consultative Committee on Disaster Management to provide a common ground for engagement in the region.
