Annually the MWE organizes a Joint sector review to assess her performance against the annual undertakings and milestones. However, with a shift to the one program approach, the JSR has been transformed into the Annual program review. As in the past years, Civil Society Organizations (CSOs) in the Environment and Natural Resources (ENR) organized under their ENR-CSO Network will actively participate in the Annual program review 2021 just as was the case for the JSR. This is always done through a self-assessment process of their contributions to the program and an assessment of the government’s performance against the commitments that it set for itself during the ended financial year 2020/2021.
