    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.

    Dates

    Countries Date
    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:

    • Topic 1: Socio-political and economic factors and levels of fragility that influence the development of PPPs in agriculture and the environment;
    • Topic 2: Country landscape of PPPs in agriculture and the environment, including their contractual frameworks and financial models;
    • Topic 3: PPPs process and management operations in agriculture and environment, including key challenges and opportunities in maintaining the partnership;
    • Topic 4: Performance and development outcomes of PPPs in agriculture and environment, including their contribution to inclusive and sustainable growth.

    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.
