1st 2012 Africa Capacity Development Report (Africa-CDR) review meeting
The NEPAD Agency and the UNDP Regional Service Centres for Africa have the pleasure to invite you to the First Review Meeting of the 2012 Africa Capacity Development Report (Africa-CDR), under the auspices of the Africa Platform for Development Effectiveness (APDev) from 10 – 14 September 2012 in Dar es Salaam, Tanzania.
The African Union and its NEPAD Programme, through the Capacity Development Strategic Framework (CDSF) has prioritized the enhancement of human, institutional, enabling environment and knowledgebased capacity in support of the Continent’s Reform Agenda for accelerated regional and Continental integration. In furtherance of this agenda the NEPAD Agency is partnering with the UNDP in developing the Africa-CDR towards assessing and benchmarking capacity development efforts in Africa.
The maiden Africa–CDR addresses the challenge of translating policies and plans into concrete development results and the role of institutions in that process. More specifically, this Report aims to analyse the capacity of policy and implementation institutions for effective interplay in advancing national development.
The main purpose of the meeting is for stakeholders to review and provide critical feedback on the preliminary country profiles and sub-regional reports being developed by the Africa-CDR team of national and sub-regional experts. Under review will be:
- the national capacity development profiles from selected participating countries;
- case studies of effective institutions from selected nonparticipating countries and
- the introductory chapters and analytical write ups that will set the tone of the ACDR.
