OUTH AND SPORTS MINISTRY CONVENES MAIDEN EDITION OF YOUTH SECTOR COORDINATION MECHANISM SESSION TODAY

Date:

MONROVIA – The Ministry of Youth and Sports is poised to today convene the maiden edition of the quarterly Youth Sector Coordination Mechanism session.

The session will be convened in Monrovia at both Policy and Technical levels, to adhere to the Paris Declaration on Aid Effectiveness, as well as the Rome Declaration on Harmonization.

The Paris Declaration on Aid Effectiveness is a roadmap to improve the quality of aid and its impact on development. It was endorsed in 2005 by more than 100 countries and international agencies, and it sets out five fundamental principles including ownership, alignment, harmonization, managing for results, and mutual accountability with the aim of making aid more effective. It also establishes a monitoring system to assess progress and ensure that donors and recipients hold each other accountable for their commitments. For the Rome Declaration, it revolves around several principal commitments including ensuring development assistance is delivered in accordance with partner countries’ priorities; reviewing and amending policy, procedures and practice to facilitate harmonization.

Deputy Minister of Youth and Sports for Youth Development, J. Bryant Mcgill will lead facilitation at the inaugural edition of the Youth Mechanism session, while Minister Cole Bangalu is expected to give the opening address.

Today’s session will witness the participation of several youth development partners currently providing interventions in a wide range of areas including health, education, youth employment and empowerment, child justice, youth peace and security, and psychosocial counseling.

The first Youth Sector Coordination Mechanism session seeks to among other things achieve outcomes such as documentation on partners’ coordination, as well as develop, validate, and endorse same.

The Sector Coordination Mechanism session also seeks to establish the National Youth Sector Inter-Sectorial and the setting up of the National Youth Sector Inter-Sectorial Technical Coordination Committee.
