Between March and June, PIP will be visiting several ACP countries to launch the new Phase. At a series of launch events the PIP team will present the extended scope of our activities, describe how to access support, and answer any questions. The team will also be available after the events to meet with individuals who require more detailed discussions or wish to explore potential support. The events will be open to a range of invited people and organisations – focusing especially on partners and potential beneficiaries.
