4. Funding arrangements for the process Mr. Speaker Sir, because of the magnitude of the process and the costs involved, the process was jointly funded by the Government of Zimbabwe and the donors through a basket of funds managed by the United Nations Development Programme (UNDP). In this regard, a Memorandum of Understanding was signed with the UNDP in March 2010 which led to the establishment of the Project Board. The Project Board, which met on a quarterly basis, was responsible for approving budgets and work plans in respect of the usage of donor funds for the process. The Project Board comprised of the entire Management Committee, 3 representatives of the donors and representatives of civil society in the form of Dr. Hope Sadza and Professor Pheneas Makhurane. The Select Committee acknowledges with thanks the role played by the UNDP Zimbabwe Resident Coordinator Mr. Alain Noudéhou, the former UNDP Zimbabwe Country Director Ms. Christine Umutoni and their team which included Mr. Mfaro Moyo, Mrs. Noria Mashumba and Mr. Anthony Nyagadza in mobilising more resources for the process. 5. Training of Outreach Team Members Pursuant to the directives of the First All Stakeholders’ Conference, COPAC facilitated the training of outreach team members in December 2009 and early January 2010. Over 700 delegates were trained during this period. Over three quarters of the Honourable Members of Parliament were involved during this exercise. The purpose of the training was to ensure that the delegates would understand the methodology for conducting the outreach programme. The major output of the workshop was the development and production of ‘Talking Points’ from the 17 thematic areas that emanated from the First Stakeholders Conference. The Talking Points were later fine-tuned by legal experts drawn from the three political parties in the GNU. These Talking Points were critical in eliciting responses from participants during the outreach programme. These Talking Points were translated into various vernacular languages. 6. Training of Rapporteurs In April 2010 the Rapporteurs who were to be responsible for recording the responses from the outreach were trained. A total of 210 Rapporteurs were trained translating to three per outreach team. These Rapporteurs represented the political parties that are signatories to the Global Political Agreement. It was decided that the three Rapporteurs would produce a report which would have to be adopted by teams as reflecting a true record of what had transpired during each meeting. 7. The Outreach Programme Before embarking on the outreach programme COPAC embarked on a process of identifying the meeting points with the assistance of stakeholders such as political parties, Provincial Administrators, District Administrators and the Zimbabwe Electoral Commission.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
