FUNDING
Some work does not need funding like conducting a regular meeting at the CHR regional
office or planning.
Based on my meeting with UNDP, UNDP funding will arrive by March and Ms. Judith is asking
for the following:
1. What is the counterpart of CHR on this campaign budget?
2. Can GovLink invite other departments to be part of this and they too can also provide
counterpart funding (e.g. info or policy can provide a small amount to the IEC
production)
3. If funding is needed to other regional offices, CHR can initially provide funding and
will be reimbursed by UNDP provided that it is in the work plan.
