Taking Stock of Global Partnership Monitoring Results at the African Post-Monitoring Workshop
The African regional post-monitoring workshop took place 14-15 September in Addis Ababa, Ethiopia. With support and collaboration from the UNDP-OECD Joint Support Team, it was hosted by the NEPAD agency and the African Union Commission (AUC), together with UNDP Regional Service Centre for Africa. As member of the Global Partnership on Development Co-operation Steering Committee, NEPAD is leading co-ordination of the African position on effective development co-operation in the lead-up to the Second High-Level Meeting of the Global Partnership (HLM2), which will take place 28 November – 1 December in Nairobi.
The workshop brought together representatives of over 35 countries, CSOs, the private sector and providers of development co-operation, including South-South Co-operation partners. It provided an opportunity for national monitoring co-ordinators and other stakeholders to review the results of the second monitoring round at the country level, drawing lessons and conclusions for further action. It also facilitated the preparation of Africa’s Common Position and Consensus that will feed into HLM2.
