  1. Oversee the work of the Core Implementation Team: the DRI Director in his/her role as the Chair of the Core Implementation Team will report to the DRI Management Board on the implementation of the DRI work programme
  2. Ensure the accountability of the Core Implementation Team
  3. Provide strategic guidance to the DRI Director and guide the strategic planning and implementation processes.
