The GMS has attracted a large number of projects by international organizations (IOs), non-governmental organizations (NGOs), and investment projects by multi-national corporations and state enterprises in the region. Dealing with these projects, whether as a member of the project team, as a government liaison official or involved in monitoring and evaluation of projects, requires an understanding of project management.
