There are three important phases for the successful development and implementation of a national plan of action. The first phase concerns the creation of a favourable environment to start work on the development of a national plan. There are four steps under phase one: the creation of a network against CSEC, situational analysis of CSEC, constructing a national vision on the issue and designing national policies to combat CSEC.
The second phase, which is the design and formulation of a national plan, includes three essential steps: analysing and prioritising problems, starting to find solutions by establishing programmes and projects and the allocation and proper management of resources. The third phase of the implementation of the national plan has two steps: putting the programmes and projects of the national plan into practice and efficient monitoring and evaluation of programmes and projects.
