Having heard the report of the secretariat on the country cap in the context of regional project/programmes, and the views expressed on it, the Board decided to:
(a) Request the secretariat to produce a revised paper that:
(i) Reflects the experience on regional projects and programmes gained by other agencies, such as UNEP, the GEF, the World Bank, the PPCR, as well as that of the regional development banks; and
(ii) Presents a proposal on the definition of regions in the context of regional projects and programmes;
(b) Consider the revised report of the secretariat as input for the Board‟s development of a policy on the approval of regional projects and programmes at the Board’s 16th meeting.
