Workshops are sometimes good, other times not so good. Place the PSTAD Implementation Review and Planning for SADC countries meeting that took place in Maputo last month in the former category!
Representatives of four countries supported by the African Development Bank – Lesotho, Madagascar, Mozambique and Zambia – participated in the workshop, along with FARA staff members and other resource persons. The workshop was held in Cardoso Hotel Conference Facilities in Maputo in Mozambique on 25-27 October 2010. Most of the participants were RAILS and DONATA Focal Points.
The workshop was very successful judging by the responses of participants. Most of the issues were clarified and all came to a common understanding on how IPTAs and RAILS learning team are to be established. The main conclusions are available in the workshop proceedings. Click here to view them.
