PSIT is home to a number of Multi-Country Programmes (MCPs) of which GRAISEA is one. MCPs are a core strategy to realise our ambition. 

Through MCPs, we work with country programmes to pilot and bring to scale new programme strategies in a combination of different interventions which leverages experience and innovation from across the confederation and the broader sector, enables learning across different contexts and to share that learning more widely, and bring evidence to influence policy and practice at a regional and global level.
