The main mode of implementation for the Strategic Plan is multi-year programme plan and annual planning processes. Criteria and checklists serve the operationalization of the guiding principles. APF will also review and refine existing engagement and disengagement strategies. APF works with contextualized results-based planning, monitoring, evaluation and learning processes. We secure sustainable staffing and funding based on sound resource mobilization strategies. We implement the major share of its work in partnership with local actors, but independent engagement may be taken if APF is best placed and requested to act. Strategic and targeted external communications are essential for APF’s work, not the least in Strategic Priorities 4 (a&b) and 3. APF applies utmost care that communication outputs fully mirror APF’s Guiding Principles, including conflict sensitivity and impartiality. Communication would be integral to programmatic work; and ultimately contribute to achieving APF’s peace building objectives.
