Investment Coordination Committee (ICC) of the National Economic and Development Authority (NEDA); (ii) accelerate early project implementation following ICC approval through detailed engineering design (DED) and tendering support, with a focus on complex and large projects requiring international expertise; and (iii) strengthen the government’s capacity to implement projects under the implementing agencies.
