The Board acknowledges the progress update on wambo.org presented by the Secretariat and notes the proposal contained in the paper “Wambo.org: Progress Update and Steps for Advancement”, as set forth in GF/B37/07 – Revision 2, to pilot a limited number of transactions by current Principal Recipients (“PRs”) using domestic funding via wambo.org.

    1. requests that the Secretariat: (i) provide to the Strategy Committee, by its next meeting, clearly defined draft indicators of success for the pilot; and (ii) report regularly to the Strategy Committee on the operationalization of this pilot, including any lessons learned from such transactions in light of the long-term perspective for wambo.org; and
