CLME+ Good Practice Guidelines for Successful National Intersectoral Coordination Mechanisms (NICs): Second Edition
These updated guidelines on good practices that favour success are intended for all current and potential NIC stakeholders. These range from citizens as members of the public to policy-makers as leaders in governance. Sections that follow provide: (i) a summary of the key features and functions of most NICs; (ii) an update to good practices for success; (iii) some samples of successful NICs; and (iv) references and resources for readers to obtain more information. The first edition of the guidelines, published in 2017, presented the challenges and good practices exemplified by some functioning NICs within some CLME countries, based on the report on the NICs survey report. This document updates the 2017 guidelines. Empirical data collected from countries within the CLME+ was used to inform this second edition of guidelines to support establishing and/or reactivating NICs throughout the CLME+ region.
