Steering Committee

Totally committed to the objectives

A key actor in the programme

Since its launch, the PPRD South 3 programme has benefitted from the guidance of a steering committee responsible for its progress.  As the decision-maker, the steering committee provides the strategic vision and common objectives of the project.

The Steering Committee of PPRD South 3 meets once a year to ensure the smooth running of the programme. It ensures that the actions implemented do not deviate from the initial objectives, validates important decisions and strategic choices. Guaranteeing the coherence of the project, it is able to arbitrate priorities and maintains a dynamic between the various actors involved.
