The EU considers the Aid Effectiveness Agenda an essential process to ensure greater EU coherence in external action. To facilitate the implementation of this process, the EU launched the Joint Programming (JP) in 2011. Ghana was selected, amongst other, as a potential pilot country for EU JP. The EU JP partners conducted the 1st phase of the JP in Ghana covering the period 2013-2016, and are now interested to reiterate the process as a second phase, which will run from 2017 to 2020. The main objective is to facilitate the task of the EU Development Partners (DPs) involved in Joint Programming (JP) in Ghana of preparing Phase II 2017-2020. The preparatory work will take into consideration the context, progress and limiting factors that characterised Phase I 2013-2016, with an aim to drawing key lessons to take into consideration in the preparation and implementation of Phase II. The preparatory process of Phase II of EU JP in Ghana will include : (a) a joint analysis of national policies and planning reference documents; (b) mapping of EU DPs interventions in the country; (c) consultation with relevant stakeholders in the JP process; (d) draft the EU joint cooperation strategy paper and a common result framework; (e) define a joint Monitoring & Evaluation mechanism; (f) carry out animating workshop(s)/seminars to inform, sensitise and motivate stakeholders to actively engage in the JP process. The technical assistance will consist of two phases, which will be supported by preliminary desk work. The first field mission, Inception Phase, will focus on analysing the main reference Documents. The second field mission, Formulation Phase, will base its work on the outcomes of the initial analytical and consultative phase. During this phase, AETS consultants will draft the EU joint programming document. AETS consultants will organise an animating workshop to inform, sensitise and motivate stakeholders to actively engage in the JP process.
