Between Board meetings, the activities of the Partnership and Secretariat are guided and monitored by an Executive Committee consisting of a small number of members selected by the Board.

The role of the Executive Committee is to provide accountability and guidance to the ongoing work of the Secretariat. In particular, it provides policy direction to Secretariat activities and acts as a decision-making body.

If needed, the Executive Committee may organise Task Teams to carry out specific tasks or to generate specific outputs.
