APFNet Manual for Project Identification, Implementation and Management (APFNet “PIIM Manual” for short), intends to provide project partners with a quick reference to ensure that APFNet supported projects are applied for, implemented and managed in an efficient manner. The PIIM Manual covers the phases of a project cycle, including identification, agreement signing, inception and implementation, as well as management requirements such as project monitoring, evaluation and reporting, and project completion and closure. It is clearer in terms of timeframe and rules and procedures.
The Guidelines for APFNet Project Monitoring and Evaluation focus on priorities and procedures for external evaluation of APFNet-funded projects, including mid-term evaluation and terminal evaluation, and are intended to support evaluators, EA(s) and other stakeholders to undertake result-based evaluations, bearing the principles of being objective, independent, user-friendly, participative and credible when planning, conducting evaluation missions and reporting and sharing evaluation results.
The APFNet Communication Guide provides general guidance and good practices on recommended communication, visibility and dissemination (CV&D) activities in APFNet-funded projects, programs, mechanisms and other activities. The main purposes of the guide are: 1) To assist project EAs, and other partners in developing and implementing communication strategies to communicate their work effectively to target audiences; 2) To set out the nature and frequency of communication products that project EAs and partners should develop specifically for use by the APFNet Secretariat in its efforts, to disseminate the lessons learned in APFNet-funded interventions to target audiences.
Guidelines on Visual Identity and Logo Usage for APFNet Funded Projects have been developed to promote the visual identity of APFNet funded projects. They aim to help project partners prepare communication/publication materials in a coherent way.
The guidelines include usage rules for APFNet’s name and logo, with a series of templates for different communication materials as examples.
Project partners should strictly follow the guidelines for all their communication /publication materials, including project documents, papers, news relating to the implementation of APFNet funded projects etc.
