The ATSEA-2 operational framework combines global reach with regional collaboration and national coordination. This allows the project to operate effectively at both the local level and in the wider, regional context of the project.
ATSEA-2 is managed at a regional level by the Regional Project Management Unit (RPMU) and guided by PEMSEA Resource Facility (PRF) as the executing agency. The United Nations Development Programme (UNDP) is the implementing agency for the Programme.
Activities at the national level are synchronised by national coordination units (NCUs), guided by the RPMU and reported to national project boards in each of the countries.
In Indonesia, Papua New Guinea and Timor-Leste, a diverse network of regional authorities, government ministries, consultants, partners and support staff synergize their efforts through an established chain of command.
ATSEA-2 comprises numerous roles and departments, each with its own expertise and responsibilities. From executives and beneficiaries through to implementing partners and environmental advisors, the working structure of ATSEA-2 has been designed to offer a democracy of ideas, within a comprehensive and cohesive organisational design. Here is a closer look at each of the key junctions in this collaborative framework:
