To ensure alignment with EnDev’s strategy and targets as well as optimizing on additionality in line with advances in market development, EnDev performs regular portfolio reviews, which feed directly into the preparation of the programming of country activities. The programming is conducted roughly every second year and is an important strategic process during which countries develop proposals for the next implementation phase.
