Summary of Changes/Comments
December 14, 2021 - New Project Board ToR and FAQ with generic guidance and standard text on the main duties and responsibilities of a project board have been added as hyperlinks to Step 1.0 Hold programme/project board reviews at least annually of the Procedures. The Project TOR includes rules on the composition of the project board and categories of board member representation; protocols for project board operations (including addressing conflicts of interest); suggested outputs for board meetings; support functions to the Board; and other key matters.

January 15, 2021 - The RACI (Roles/Accountability/Consult/Inform) matrix is now available to clarify the roles and accountabilities for the GEF project cycle from origination to project financial closure, including oversight. This is only applicable for GEF-funded projects. It is linked in step 1.0 of the Oversight (Review & Adjust) procedures.

December 03, 2019 - Updates were made across the programme and project management chapter of the POPP to reflect the shift from the UNDAF to the UN Cooperation Framework. Updates were also made under programme appraisal to reflect the shift from the HQ PAC, which quality assured completed CPDs at the end of programme design, to the IPAC, which assesses the programme’s theory of change closer to the start of the process as a learning function.
