The Agenda o Global Local o Unique joint Vision / Objectives at all levels o Catalyzing unique joint multi-stakeholder processes, learning, and action at different levels o Towards continuous practice change: all levels; all stakeholders; all facets of sustainability
Support structures - Issues and Options MSP: o “Sign-up” to consensus o Constituency representation Focus area groups o Refinements? o Reporting? Guiding group o Constituency basis? (clusters) o Executive committtee Support team o Changes? o Extra staff (funding) Renaming Funding
MSP Discussion point: o What steps can be taken to encourage greater adherence (‘sign-up’) to the Agenda Consensus? o Do you agree that the Agenda needs to develop a mechanism to have ‘guaranteed’ constituency representation during its meetings?
Focus area groups Discussion points: o Are any changes required to their aims, scope, membership, communication, and means of operation? o What regularity and type of reporting is required from these groups? (Reporting to the Guiding Group, and to the MSP)
Support team ToRs: The Agenda Support team supports the building and implementation of the Agenda in particular through: (i) facilitating stakeholder interaction, coordination and consensus building; (ii) providing and coordinating expertise and analysis; (iii) assisting in the preparation of guidance for technology and policy development.
Support team Discussion points: o Are any changes to the Support Team arrangement required? o Do the Support team’s terms of reference need significant revision?
Guiding Group - Refinements o Up to 5 representatives from clusters: a) Public sector; b) Private sector; c) Academia/research; d) Donors; e) NGOs; and f) Social movements and community-based organizations; o The 6 clusters will structure themselves and decide how they want to be represented on the Guiding Group. Focus Area Groups will be expected to ensure their views are expressed through member balance across these six clusters; o Focus Area Chairs and Chairs of any new Agenda-supported regional, national, or local MSPs will have a seat on the Guiding Group;
Guiding Group - Refinements o Guiding Group will be appointed for a two year term. Members may be reappointed by their constituency for subsequent terms; o The Chair of the Guiding Group will be selected by its members and appointed for a two year term, renewable once. o The establishment of an “executive committee”: small executive group selected from the Guiding Group who, with the Support Group, tackles the issues the Guiding Group has discussed and agreed; o Executive committee composed of the Guiding Group chair, the 3 Chairs of the Focus Area Groups plus another two representatives from the Guiding Group.
