Notes

  1. Some activities (e.g. Division of Labour, M&E training initiative, induction resources) may be taken forward by smaller groups (as agreed by the full TWG).

  2. MoP is the lead agency on this initiative so PPR TWG is the principal forum.

  3. Not all tasks/responsibilities included in the P&H TWG ToR (para IV) are explicitly included in the 2009 AWP but may be addressed as the need arises.
