This section introduces Tip #4 for better PPD implementation and getting results, which is that of creating a simple, explicit organization. A setting that seems to be most appropriate to optimize these key success factors and prevalent in the most productive PPD programs is a structure characterized by a dedicated secretariat and working groups. They meet often to devise recommendations for periodical plenary sessions/forums. A Secretariat should be set up as a neutral entity or ‘honest broker” focused on keeping every actor within the PPD informed, prepared and productive. The most important criteria of an organization in which a secretariat is located are that it should be effective, able to build capacity, reach a wide range of businesses, acceptable to a range of stakeholders, and it should not duplicate existing institutions. This section will also present different types of secretariats, drawing examples from Belarus, Malaysia, Benin, Tajikistan and Jordan.
