Open Call for candidates to the Steering Committee (SC) of the PREZODE initiative

PREZODE is organizing the overall process to establish the Steering Committee of the initiative. A call for applications opens today, with a vote to take place in March 2023.

To apply to the SC, fill out the form by clicking here to provide the needed information.

Background

On October 11th, 2022, the General Assembly of the members of PREZODE adopted the terms of reference of the initiative’s  governance with an organization in 4 main bodies:

  • A General Assembly (GA), gathering all members (signatories of the PREZODE’s letter of intent), adopting the strategy and the deliverables of the initiative,
  • A Steering Committee (SC), proposing the strategic orientations to the General Assembly
  • A Donors Committee, mobilizing and securing resources in support of the Initiative
  • The Secretariat.

Two advisory bodies complement this organization, an independent Scientific Advisory Board, and an independent Ethics Committee.
The call as mentioned above concerns the Steering Committee (SC)

Functions of the SC

The Steering Committee (SC) is the body that elaborates and submits to the GA the strategic orientations for the initiative. In particular, it:

  • submits annual work-plans and budgets for the initiative,
  • submits other strategic documents, including revisions of the Terms of Reference of the governance of the initiative,
  • submits revisions of the Strategic Agenda of the initiative every 2 years.

The SC is also the body making decisions on several actions related to the initiative. In particular, it:

  • decides on the endorsement (under PREZODE label) by PREZODE of projects, programs, and networks on the basis of the assessment by an ad-hoc working group,
  • decides on working groups or task forces on specific topics,
  • guides and reviews their activities, engages and communicates with potential partners and stakeholders.

The SC will guide the Secretariat and review its activities.
