Once the team has received comments from all reviewers, as well as from in-country workshop participants, it is time to finalize the report. The authors of each respective section are asked to make any necessary edits, although the team coordinator commonly tracks and consolidates all the revisions in a single document. Reports will benefit from professional editing to improve grammar, readability, and consistency, as well as formatting in accordance with the project or donor’s branding guidelines.
TIP ► If the team held an in-country consultation, it will be important to write a short summary of the discussion including the top five prioritized recommendations. This summary should be included as an appendix, and may serve as the basis for an action plan outlining potential follow-on activities.
