Based on the updated Demand Scenarios and Resource Forecasts, the Board decides to establish a balanced Working Group with participation by Dr. Peter Godfrey-Faussett, the outgoing Chair of the TRP, to review the current policies that guide both resource mobilization and resource allocation and to develop a framework for managing the tension between resource demand and supply in a resource-constrained environment.
Upon the recommendation of the Board Chair and Vice-Chair, the Board approves the appointment of the following members of the Working Group:
|1.||Peter van Rooijen, as Co-Chair||Developed Country NGO|
|2.||Dr. Sigrun Mögedal, as Co-Chair||Point 7|
|3.||Javier Hourcade Bellocq||Communities|
|4.||Dr. Agnes Binagwaho||Eastern and Southern Africa|
|6.||Amb. Patrice Debré||France/Spain|
|8.||Bill Parr||Western Pacific Region|
|9.||Sujatha Rao||South East Asia|
|10.||Todd Summers||Private Foundations|
|11.||Dr. Ernest Messiah||Latin America and the Caribbean|
The Working Group is requested to:
1. provide recommendations for amendments of existing policies regarding prioritization for funding technically sound proposals in a resource-constrained environment, subject to review at the appropriate times;
2. provide recommendations, if possible, on future resource allocation policies, to be followed-up by the appropriate Board committee(s); and
3. present options for an increased and urgent resource mobilization effort.
The Working Group is requested to seek appropriate input during its deliberations, consult with PC, PSC and FAC, and report to the Board before its Twentieth Board Meeting in November 2009.
