The governance structure for ReCAP has four different types of bodies each with their distinct roles:
- Executive Committee: High-level decision making
- Steering Committee(s) for Africa and Asia: Strategic level monitoring and advising
- National Steering Committees: National level coordination and monitoring
Technical Panel: Technical advice
The Executive Committee is the ultimate decision making body and comprises representatives from the ReCAP Steering Committees (e.g. the two Chairpersons), FCDO and representatives of multilateral development partners involved in rural road and rural transport programmes in Africa and Asia.
Participants of the AfCAP and AsCAP Steering Committees are representatives of partner countries at senior government level as well as regional bodies and development partners involved in the rural transport sector.
The Technical Panel is composed of highly experienced specialists in the field of rural transport in low-income countries. The overall role of the Technical Panel is to ensure the quality of research under the ReCAP programme.
The Project Management Unit is responsible for the implementation of the decisions and for the overall operation of the Partnership.
