Management

To ensure that the project was managed and operated smoothly, three procedures were established: monitoring and evaluation system, regular meeting system and publicity.

Establishment of Monitoring and Evaluation system

The long-term experts and USP counterparts were primarily responsible for the planning of their annual activities under their respective components and monitoring their progress. A record of activity progress and planning for the ensuing year is documented and formally reported to the Joint Coordinating Committee (JCC).

Joint Coordinating Committee (JCC)

The Joint Coordinating Committee was established as the authorizing committee for decision-making in Fiji. It met annually to monitor progress and appraise yearly plans. JCC members included Japanese and USP representatives, and key stakeholders from the Fiji Government.

Operations Committee (OC)

The Operations Committee comprised of the JICA experts and USP counterparts who met on a quarterly basis to review and exchange information on current progress.

Publicity

The publicity of activities/outputs of the project were conducted to generate awareness and to maximise benefits for local communities of Pacific Island countries and taxpayers in Japan

Under the management of the project, there have been three schemes for its implementation:

Dispatch of Experts

USP staff experienced a total of thirty-six visits by short-term experts from Japan for the purpose of technology transfer in the last three years of the project.

Counterpart training in Japan

Another important part of the scheme was sending 10 USP counterparts to Japan for short and long-term training across all components.
