The implementation strategies can vary depending on the specific objectives and nature of the Programme and the context where the Programme is implemented. In general, the following five strategies are applied to all Programmes.

The guiding principles of synergy, coherence and compatibility need to be observed through team work and inter-team cooperation. Implementation Strategies need to be implemented at all levels – local, national, regional and global level and at all stages, including planning, implementation and evaluation.
