New phase of Pro PALOP-TL SAI is presented at the Parliamentary Assembly of the Community of Portuguese Speaking Countries
Following the success achieved in the first phase, the Project for the Consolidation of Economic Governance and Public Finance Management Systems in the PALOP-TL started with Phase II (Pro PALOP-TL SAI Phase II), part of the programming of the Development for PALOP-TL / EU Cooperation. The first public presentation of the project took place at the VIII Parliamentary Assembly of the Community of Portuguese Speaking Countries (AP | CPLP), held in Praia, Cape Verde, on the 10th and 11th of January.
In the first phase, implemented between 2014 and 2017, thousands of public finance management partners were formed, including 1,151 deputies, parliamentary officials and members of civil society, 812 judges, auditors and senior supervisory staff and 1,109 staff members of Ministries of Finance.
The second phase of the Pro PALOP-TIL SAI will continue to present solutions to the challenges of public finance management and parliamentary oversight in the six beneficiary countries: Angola, Cape Verde, Guinea Bissau, Mozambique, Sao Tome and Principe and Timor-Leste. To this end, the programme reinforces technical and functional competencies, based on three pillars of training: executive budgets, Supreme Audit Institutions and, finally, Civil Society Parliaments and Organizations.
Additionally, with three years of implementation, between 2019 and 2021, Phase II of Pro PALOP-TL ISC has a total budget of 7,843,700 Euros and the co-financing and direct management of the United Nations Development Program.
Through peer learning, exchange of experiences and practices between beneficiaries and directed specialization, the project aims once again to promote lasting change with a real day-to-day impact on the citizens of the 6 countries.
The Delegation Agreement (PAGODA) for the implementation of Phase II of the Pro PALOP-TL SAI was signed on 28th of November in Cape Verde by the Delegation of the European Union of Mozambique and the United Nations Development Program (UNDP) of Cape Verde.
