Starting with a needs assessment, the partnership between Royal College of Nurses and the Zambia Union of Nurses Organisation could decide on priorities and plans and use their steering committees to define roles and responsibilities.
An MoU is a formal document that sets out the roles and responsibilities of each partner. The following example is based on a range of MoUs developed by real partnerships. It is intended to serve as an example only and you should ensure that any MoU you sign has been adapted to fit with your specific needs and that it also meets the laws and regulations of any relevant bodies operating in the countries involved.
Your project plan is the roadmap for the project, detailing, activities, short-term and long-term objectives, and how you plan to monitor your progress. Therefore it is crucial that all those involved in the delivery of the project understand it and how they are contributing to the project's objectives.
This template and guidance should be completed in partnership. It describes the resources you will need to undertake all your MEL activities and whose responsibility it is.
