The following mechanism and procedures were approved by the eighth Meeting of Representatives to be the instrument for use by AFRA Field Management to monitor the implementation of AFRA activities at national and regional level; to measure any achievement attained; to get updated information on national and regional problems or constraints that hamper the smooth implementation of AFRA activities; and consequently, to decide promptly on corrective measures. Ultimately, this will reaffirm the clear recognition among all concerned that the AFRA countries, through their Field Management, have the overall management authority and responsibility over the AFRA Programme.
