Each government participating in a project shall implement the relevant project components assigned to it and shall make available the necessary facilities and personnel for the implementation of the project and take all reasonable and appropriate steps for receiving experts, fellows, participants in training courses, etc.

Each participating government shall submit to the Agency, through the National Coordinator, an annual report on the implementation of the components of the project assigned to it during a given year. The report shall be submitted prior to the end of December of that year. These reports will be taken into account in the preparation of the working document to be considered by the TWG Meeting. The working document shall be sent by the Agency to the National Coordinators not less than three weeks prior to the date of the meeting.

The TWG and the AFRA Management have overall responsibility for the supervision of the implementation of AFRA projects. The AFRA-PMC shall review during its two meetings  (April and November) the participation of member states in AFRA projects and shall apply the criteria of participation for each case to be reviewed.

Wherever possible, provision of experts for AFRA projects should be from within AFRA countries since AFRA is essentially focused on Technical Cooperation among Developing Countries (TCDC). Similarly, wherever possible, maximum use should be made of the training opportunities offered by AFRA countries for fellowship training and scientific visits.

AFRA members states that can offer the services of experts should forward personal and technical data relating to such persons to the Agency and such information should be continuously updated. It is extremely desirable for AFRA countries to offer cost-free experts and host training activities at “no cost” to the AFRA Programme.

The Agency will use United Nations Development Programme (UNDP) offices for providing, where necessary, the services which UNDP offices provide to other Agency projects.

The Agency will also make evaluations of completed AFRA projects and make them available to all AFRA members
