- Presentations and discussion (45 minutes)
UN Mission / UN Agency / Organisation representatives (briefed previously) to provide a brief overview of the roles and responsibilities of their organisation; in terms of children and armed conflict in general, and with MRM in particular.
Each presenter to take some questions to clarify but not get into a detailed discussion.
- Plenary discussion (15 minutes)
During the first part of the session the facilitator should note down on the flip chart key areas of responsibility.
Some possible areas for discussion include:
- Highlight areas of activity that overlap between organisations and ask if it works or are there any problems with the overlap.
- Can you spot any gaps in the implementation in terms of UN / NGO responsibility? How can we address these gaps?
- How do we ensure cohesive working and avoid 'competition'?
- Is the in-country structure and leadership on MRM clear?
