• To harmonise the plans of the different divisions and projects so as to maximize success and impact of the planned activities;
• To ensure alignment of each activity to the Centre’s and AAU’s overall missions;
• To ensure each activity is linked to resources (personnel and budget); and
• To ensure efficient use of resources by avoiding unnecessary overlaps of activities planned by the different divisions and projects while at the same time ensuring inclusion of all key activities.
