Coordination and Project Implementatio​n Division (CPID)

The Coordination and Project Implementation Division (CPID) was established in 2000 with the main objective to coordinate and manage the implementation of the 2nd Environment Investment Programme which comprised some 72 projects in various fields such as agricultural management, tourism management, transport management, land management, solid waste management, industrial management, water resources management, terrestrial biodiversity and programmes for Rodrigues,which were funded by the then Ministry of Environment, Human Resource Development and Employment. With the introduction of the Programme Based Budgeting (PBB) system requiring the line Ministries to earmark funds under their own budget, the Division’s roles and responsibilities were reviewed.

In a nutshell, the Division has the responsibility to ensure that:

·        Projects are adequately prepared;

·        Funds are channeled to priority areas at the right time; and

·        Information sharing mechanisms are established.

Moreover, the Division has the responsibility to coordinate and report on the following issues:

·        Government Programme;

·        Blue Print for the period 2015-2025;
