      The Secretariat realised an implementation rate of 85% of planned activities, and 58% utilization rate for 2020/21 budget.

It is also worth noting that, the achieved 85% implementation rate was the highest rate recorded since 2016/17. In 2016/17 implementation rate was 80%, in 2017/18 was 82%, in 2018/19 was 80%, and in 2019/20 was 79%.
