Looking ahead to Draft Guidance

Following completion of Phase 1 of the project, which was the consultation, we are now focussing on developing the draft Guidance with input from the Technical and Practitioner Advisory Groups. We plan to do this work in three tranches, each culminating in an Exposure Draft, followed by a 4-month response period. Find out more below.

Meet new Country Champions

We are pleased to introduce three new Country Champions, for Morocco, Romania and Benin. We are thrilled to have them contribute their expertise and enthusiasm to the project. You can see the full list of Country Champions here. Feel free to reach out to your Country Champion, or contact us to volunteer here if your country does not yet have one.

Non-English Resources

We aim to provide more content and resources for stakeholders in French, Spanish and Arabic to support greater engagement. We have created a new page on the website that curates the videos, events and written content in those languages for easier access.
