Donor Co-ordination

Donor coordination for effective and timely delivery of capacity building support to Members is crucial to planning. While some sponsors run long-term projects designed and planned in detail with the project managers, other sponsors may fund ad-hoc assistance requested by Members and prioritized within the planning process. The CB Directorate informs donors, among others the Customs Cooperation Funds, about Members' expressed needs.

One of the key elements of the strategic planning process is to engage stakeholders and, where needed, donors. This is an area where the WCO can offer capacity building support on e.g. how to engage stakeholders and how to organize national, sub-regional or regional donor conferences. The CB Development compendium contains a chapter on Donor Engagement (Chapter 10).
