One of the major outputs of the project is ‘Collaboration on resource mobilization strengthened’. Resource where ERD will take lead in exploring the possible areas of collaboration with different partners including the development partners. The project will support ERD to explore ways and means to promote such coordination among partners who can join hands in mobilizing alternate ways of resource mobilization in parallel to traditional development partners. The project will enable ERD to scan for such potential areas of coordination and support appropriate evidence-based advocacy for collaboration. In addition, the project will also support ERD to identify the need for any policy response which may facilitate the process.

Against this backdrop, main objective of the consultancy is to enhance ERD’s capacity in coordination of South-South and Triangular cooperation initiatives both in the national and global context.
