The Programme Planning and Technical Cooperation Section advises the Executive Secretary on strategic issues, priorities and policies with regard to programme planning, budgeting, monitoring, technical cooperation and results-based management. It coordinates all the Commission’s operational activities and produces the Commission’s biennial strategic plan and budget.
The Section has a broad planning remit to convert the Commission’s vision for the region into concrete, coordinated activities. It also manages the Regular Programme for Technical Cooperation (RPTC) and the Development Account. Its underlying mandate is results based and aims to address the priorities of member countries and global development agendas.
