* Manage the Programme Working Group and engage with members regularly to get guidance on the Accelerator’s programmatic approach and government engagement efforts
* Report frequently to the Steering Committee and other Secretariat members on progress in-country, and flag any issues to the Resilient Water Accelerator Director that may require strategic steer from the Steering Committee
* Synthesize intelligence from liaison managers to facilitate the Steering Committee’s decisions around country programmes
* Work with the rest of the Secretariat and country teams to respond to any funding or financing management requirements related country activities
* Capture the needs of in-country teams and match them with the right set of expertise
