Collaboration: Cross-Cutting Themes

Cross-Cutting Themes were established based on needs that arises during the growth phase of the Initiative. These themes were carefully endorsed based on the importance of it adhering to the principles of the Regional Plan of Action (RPOA) and achievement of the objectives and targets.

To ensure an integrated and coherent implementation of activities, the CTI also addresses issues that cut across the five goals of its RPOA. (Interested in joining one of these groups? Click here.)
