The Facility’s Project Management Unit (PMU) organizes, coordinates and implements the different interventions and activities. In doing so, it receives support from technical experts from within the implementing agencies and beyond, making sure that the right technical expertise is provided upon demand.
I am leading the PMU team, coordinating with the donors of the Facility and managing the GIZ contribution.
The ICR Facility is a great example of how the whole sometimes is greater than the sum of the parts. Delivering value for our partners in ACP countries really is a shared effort between all the ICR partners. Contributing to this team effort is a great reason to come to my desk every morning.
I coordinate Output Area 1 which includes, developing, supervising and constantly improving our growing pipeline of technical assistance interventions as well as our mechanisms to assess and implement these.
My days are filled with enriching exchanges with partners from all over the world, and I learn a lot from each of them! Early in the morning, I may meet a group of government officials in Kiribati to discuss investment climate challenges. At noon, I may meet a business association in Kenya to review together a technical report. Later in the afternoon, I may meet a regional organisation from the Caribbean to evaluate reform opportunities raised by our ICR intervention.
I also love my diverse team and our Friday lunches with Belgian fries.
I coordinate the inputs of Expertise France for the Facility. I cover all three components of the Facility, with a special focus on Output Area 2 where we provide technical assistance to Development Finance Institutions.
I appreciate being able to work with diverse stakeholders in different countries. It is interesting to see how institutions can face very similar challenges while being thousands of kilometres apart – and that sharing their experiences can help them implement innovative solutions.
I coordinate the delivery of the ICR Facility’s knowledge agenda in Output Area 3. Our aim is to compile and share learning and good practices that support business environment and investment climate reforms while also spurring requests for technical assistance. My position is a temporary maternity cover for my colleague Marijke.
Working with colleagues, clients and stakeholders in the EU and across ACP countries is an unprecedented learning opportunity for me, which is made all the more meaningful by the beneficial objectives and impact that the ICR Facility seeks to deliver.
My work within the Project Management Unit particularly focuses on the promotion, reception, processing, and implementation of requests from ACP countries. I also engage in several administrative activities involving SNV’s role as an implementing partner within the ICR Facility.
I am happy to work with a project and a team that is passionate about impact at national and subnational levels in developing countries. The ICR Facility is called to help solving real problems identified by ACP stakeholders themselves, and provide strategic and evidence-based contributions to resolving these problems. I am glad to be part of that.
I am responsible for managing all the project delivery related activities and inputs of the British Council. I am also a Technical Advisor for Output Area 1, which responds to requests from ACP stakeholders for technical assistance to undertake business environment reforms.
Contributing to improving the business environment and investment climate so that businesses including impact enterprises can grow and create decent jobs for the youth in ACP countries, solving social and environmental issues that ACP countries face and supporting sustained economic growth - these are the reasons I am motivated and passionate about my daily work.
I am a Financial Systems Development Advisor under Output Area 2 where I coordinate and manage the Facility’s support to Development Finance Institutions in ACP countries.
The work in the ICR Facility motivates me because its demand-driven nature allows us to work on a broad range of the topics.
I contribute to the implementation of activities under Output Area 1 on behalf of Expertise France which includes, for instance, the assessment, design and organization of technical assistance interventions.
Working for the ICR Facility means working within an inspiring international environment and being part of a diverse and multicultural team that motivates me every day to contribute to harnessing the potential of ACP countries.
I provide logistical and administrative support in the day-to-day management of the ICR Facility and its components.
I enjoy the challenges of adapting to a constantly changing environment. The perspectives that make up the ICR Facility team are as varied as the backgrounds of its members. This makes my days rewarding and full of lessons learned.
I work on the external communication and on the monitoring and evaluation processes of the ICR Facility. I further coordinate interventions on business environment reforms on behalf of GIZ and am involved in developing knowledge products.
Promoting sustainable and inclusive economic development and including the voices of diverse stakeholders in reform processes drives my passion in the ICR Facility. It is great to work with organisations from the ACP and Europe towards a common goal.
I primarily support the Facility’s Communication activities and work under Output Area 3. Besides that, I am helping with all different activities, wherever an extra hand is needed.
The great variety of topics and activities embedded in a diverse, international context, implemented by our diverse, international and highly motivated team is what makes me passionate about working in the ICR Facility.
