What is the overall impact of CAF/RISM?
The funding incentives to the Member States under RISM are already supporting regional integration, motivating the countries to: re-organize their national management, coordination, implementation and monitoring of regional integration programmes, through the establishment of National Inter-Ministerial Coordinating Committees.
RISM has also been instrumental in communicating challenges in the regional integration process through the strengthened technical ties between Member States and the Secretariat. The robust interactions with the Member States and the European Union that are inherent to the programme have fostered continuous refinement and enhancement of the programme. This has set RISM apart as a highly interactive, flexible, learning and adaptive programme with notable positive impacts on regional integration.
