To this end, the PL will interact with (government and donor) clients, quantify client requirements (both in outcomes and methods), translate requirements into clear work plans, assemble teams to complete work, and monitor execution. The PL will be responsible for assessing risks and putting in place strategies to mitigate these risks. The PL will hold project members accountable to key project outcomes and lead the team by way of managing activities towards the establishment and critical use of Catalyst Centers.
