WOP: OWMCP - WWN / WRIJ

The governance of the partnership was more informal and less structured, allowing the partnership to develop slowly. As organisational and individual capacity grew within OWMCP (as a result of the cooperation), and the organisation became more structured, so did the partnership. With the help of the partners, OWMCP developed a new organisational structure with clearer task division that relieved managers of operational functions by delegating more tasks.

Phase 2 of the partnership involved more structured governance and strengthened cooperation in line with requirements of the EU regarding governance and reporting.
