JLOS Development Partners
The JLOS Development Partners Group (JLOS DPG) comprises agencies that support JLOS through various mechanisms including sector budget support and project support, partly through the SWAp fund. The group has a membership of Austria, Denmark, Germany, Ireland, the Netherlands, Norway, Sweden, UNDP, OHCHR, UNICEF, ICRC, UNWOMEN, UNFPA, and USAID. The United Kingdom and the European Union Delegation participate as non-contributing members.
Every two years the DPG chair rotates. To foster coordination among themselves and to keep pace with JLOS developments, the group meets once every month.
The JLOS DPG frequently meets with the JLOS Secretariat and with individual institutions and together they conduct joint reviews and joint M&E visits. The DPG has linkages to the broader Development Partner community through the Local Development Partner Group.
The relationship between the JLOS DPG and the sector is based on the general GoU-Donor Partnership Principles of 2003. On the basis of the partnership principles, JLOS and the DPG have developed collaboration and co-ordination mechanisms to ensure effective contribution of the latter to the reform process.
