During Project Design The SBV is the executing agency responsible for overall coordination of the program. The EMCC has a tiered governance structure. A Steering Committee is chaired by a Deputy Prime Minister and includes heads of agencies of key implementing agencies. The Steering Committee reviews and endorses the proposed areas of operational focus. Technical teams, represented by senior technocrats from key implementing agencies and EMCC development partners, help oversee the preparation of the operation, discuss the technical elements of policy actions, decide on analytical work, and brief the Steering Committee. Annually, three technical missions are carried out to appraise and monitor progress towards policy actions.
During Project Implementation Monitoring and evaluation of the program will also take place through three main channels. The first channel is monitoring progress against the results indicators agreed in the policy matrix. These include indicators that have been drawn directly from the Government's own strategies, and independent sources and surveys. The second channel is monitoring specific follow-up activities to prior actions, and milestones for future triggers. These will be identified on a regular basis and updated. This responds to earlier concerns that whilst policies may have been adopted, implementation does not follow suit. The third channel will be in depth analytical work on specific policy actions. This will help to identify more precisely ex ante specific issues to monitor during implementation of prior actions.
