Why using PABs?

The purpose or overall objective of the PABs is more comprehensive than what is stated in the ISG Work Plan. The PABs should contribute to Key Area 1 in the Work Plan - “Facilitation of policy dialogue within and between MARD and donors”. In doing this, PABs should serve as a mechanism:


  • For MARD representatives to raise and discuss policy issues in ISG forum.


  • For donor representatives to present their views.


  • For understanding policy processes, both in MARD and in the donor community.


The final outcome – the PAB product– is forwarded to MARD policy makers (the Minister, leaders of Departments). It will also be sent to all relevant stakeholders for reference and working.
