A series of sensitisation seminars on the CARICOM Results-Based Management (RBM) System continues this week with sensitisation sessions in Dominica. The seminars, which began in Barbados 24-25, November last year, will continue throughout the year in other Member States.
The RBM System promotes a more results-focused approach to programme and project management.
These sensitisation seminars will target a wide cross-section of stakeholders including Parliamentarians, Permanent Secretaries, International Development Partners, Regional Institutions, Directors and Corporate Planners, the Private Sector, Non-governmental Organisations (NGO’s) and the Media.
The 2014 approval of the Strategic Plan for the Caribbean Community 2015-2019 by CARICOM Heads of Government, marked a cross-road for the Community. The document clearly articulated the need for a more results-focussed approach to programme and project management, which would respond to the much lamented implementation deficit.
The CARICOM RBM System was instituted at the Secretariat from January 2018, and is expected to serve as a mechanism to engender a more results-oriented culture within its Regional Institutions and importantly, at Member States level.
