The IDC Secretariat has developed an international and regional strategic engagement and coordination model to assist the development and implementation of its strategic and operational plan approved by the Board.
IDC operations are divided into the following 5 regions – Asia-Pacific, Africa, Middle East and North Africa (MENA), Americas and Europe. Additional international and sub-regional advisors may be specified in the IDC strategic and operational plan depending on prioritization and need as approved by the Board.
Each region or sub-region may be allocated a Regional Advisor based in the region, who works together with the Regional Coordinator and Secretariat, to develop and implement the IDC’s work in the region according to the approved strategic plan.
Regional Coordinators (staff) are the Secretariat lead for a nominated region, who work collaboratively with the relevant Regional Advisors (volunteer) or International Advisors (volunteer) and other key stakeholders in developing regional initiatives across the IDC’s four key areas of work together with IDC members.
Regional Advisors assist the IDC Secretariat, advising and working in collaboration with the Regional Coordinator, members and stakeholders and overseeing, developing and implementing regional and national initiatives.
