Approved by the Board on: 28 January 2002
One delegation proposed that the Fund consider preparing a letter to potential donors in an effort to raise awareness and request applications to the Fund while another delegation recommended highlighting the communication and advocacy efforts of the Fund.
The Chair clarified that the letter was intended to update relevant partners to keep their interest up and to inform potential recipient countries and donors. The Chair emphasized that communication is a key element for the Fund.
Further thinking will be required as to the details of how to implement a longer-term, comprehensive strategy. A working group will be required.
However, communication on the results of the first Board meeting is still expected, and agreement on key messages will be required.
The Secretariat will work with Board members to agree on a strategy and messages for this Board meeting. It was so decided.
