The main objective of the module of 'position papers’ is to provide decision makers with information and data to formulate their decisions and policies accordingly. This way we gurantee policies and decisions-based knowledge. Position papers usually prepared by external specialists whether locals or internationals, and in-house specialists. Those position papers should be reviewed and approved by the advisory committee. Upon this approval the FMRU facilitates the publishing of those papers, and extracts the main recommendations and share it with the stakeholders.
