The United Nations University Institute for Natural Resources in Africa (UNU-INRA) is organising National Validation and Dissemination Workshops in six Sub-Saharan African countries, namely Burundi, Cameroon, Ghana, Mozambique, Senegal and South Africa.
|Cameroon||March 18. 2016|
|Ghana||April 7, 2016|
|Senegal||April 14, 2016|
|Mozambique||April 28, 2015|
|Burundi||May 12, 2016|
|South Africa||May 26, 2016|
The workshop is being organised under UNU-INRA’s project: “ Improving the Development Outcomes of Private-Public-Partnerships (PPPs) in Agriculture and the Environment“, with funding from the International Development Research Centre (IDRC). The aim is to bring together key national stakeholders directly involved in PPPs to review and discuss findings of country assessment studies conducted in the various countries. This is to help identify critical issues that need to be addressed to better inform inclusive and sustainable PPPs in agriculture and the environment.
The workshop participants in each country would be PPPs experts for agricultural development from the private sector, researchers from relevant institutions, government officials from key ministries, experts from non-governmental organizations (NGOs) and local and international development partners with interest in PPPs for agriculture and the environment.
There will be four topics that would form the basis of discussions during sessions at the workshops. These are:
It is expected that comments, observations and perspectives emerging from the discussion sessions would provide valuable inputs into the country assessment reports in terms of identifying pressing priorities for setting-up inclusive and sustainable PPPs in agriculture and the environment.
