The ANSA Global Partnership Fund Panel
Championing and providing strategic advice to ANSA
The ANSA Global Partnership Fund Panel (GPFP) will consist of internationally recognized individuals with far-reaching experience in social accountability, demand-for-good-governance approaches, participatory governance, and related topics. One individual from each of the four existing ANSA regions will sit on the GPFP. Additional individuals will participate in the GPFP in their personal capacities, and can be drawn from civil society, the public sector, the private sector, academia, or the media.
The GPFP’s primary objective will be to leverage its experience and expertise to enhance the impact of ANSA Global’s work. As such, its primary mandate will be to promote the ANSAs globally as well as in their individual regions, to assist in providing overall strategic direction to ANSA Global, to help in the mobilization of resources, and to approve multi-year work programs and budgets.
Members of the GPFP will be elected for a three-year period, with membership renewable upon the end of their first term. The GPFP will be expected to meet formally at least once every 12 months, preferably in alignment with global/regional events to derive maximum traction from the members. For routine and urgent matters, the members of the GPFP will be expected to communicate via e-mail and telephone/skype. Extraordinary meetings of the GPFP can be requested by any of its members, and will be hosted by ANSA-Global subject to budget. The GPFP cannot make binding decisions on these issues, either on behalf of ANSA-Global, or on behalf of other stakeholders.
