The Khartoum Process was mandated, at the Valletta SOM in February 2017, to monitor the implementation of the initiatives and actions outlined in the Valletta Action Plan for the period 2016- 2018.
A tool for monitoring
During the first half of 2017, the structure of the monitoring tool was presented at the Senior Officials Meeting in Addis Ababa. There a presentation of the long term monitoring and reporting tool was given by the International Centre for Migration Policy Development (ICMPD) to ensure the thorough circulation of methods of populating the database, with the assistance of National Focal Points (NFP).Emphasis was laid on ownership and transparency in the flow of information from NFPs
Where are we now?
The rest of 2017 was focussed on the design and development of the database enabling storage of all actions related to the JVAP: from bilateral to supranational funding schemes.
Reports will be made available to map and monitor the implementation of national projects as well as reports on the regional level.
Look out for:
A new section will appear on the KP website labelled “JVAP monitoring” providing direct and easy access to the database before the end of the year.
