The SNRD Asia and the Pacific’s Working Group Allowance has enabled the Working Groups to bring their initiatives to life.
The Sector Network has allocated a budget of Thirty Thousand Euro to support the Working Group in their activities in 2019.
Each WG is entitled to 5,000 Euro and 2,500 Euro for the Joint WG. Once approved by the Steering Committee, the fund is available to support the WGs activities as stated in their proposal. In case the WGs do not make use of this entitlement, the fund will flow to a common pool where other WGs can bid for. This ensures that all budget will not go to waste whereas for initiatives that may require a higher amount of money, this can be of a great helping hand.
All the fund allocated for 2019 has been completely applied for and the result of the Working Group activities will be shared once they are all concluded.
