How to become a pathfinder country?

Countries need to submit a formal expression of interest to the Alliance 8.7 Secretariat. The letter should be signed by a government minister and set out:

  • The country’s interest in participating as a pathfinder country
  • Its commitment to significantly accelerate efforts towards achieving Target 8.7
  • Recent achievements and previous national initiatives to build upon
  • The appointment of a senior government official as a focal point to lead and coordinate Alliance 8.7 efforts in the country.

Organizing a strategic planning workshop is a first important step to bring partners together, establish a common agenda and prioritize country-level action. For further information on dates and locations of strategic workshops please visit the Alliance 8.7 calendar.
