The Sharing Continues - Lessons learned from the EU Food Facility Regional Programme

Capitalisation and Closing Workshop of the Programme

5 and 6 September 2012 - Abuja

After about a year and a half of implementation, the EU Food Facility Regional Programme implemented by IFAD, ECOWAS and ICRISAT in West Africa will close officially on 31 August 2012.

The learning and sharing however are still an ongoing process. In order to ensure this process lives along with the all of the dispositions put into place by the EU FF, ECOWAS and IFAD with the assistance of UNOPS is organising yet another capitalisation workshop in Abuja. The Workshop will take place at the Immaculate Suites (Wuse II) Abuja on 5 and 6 September 2012.

The objective of the workshop is to share and diffuse the results of the EU Food Facility Regional Programme in West Africa with a larger audience coming from representatives of the governments where the programme was implemented (Bénin, Burkina Faso, Côte d'Ivoire, Ghana, Mali, Niger, Sénégal) and technical partners from the region as well as the EU and UN Agencies.

Through innovative approaches we will share the following information during the workshop:

- positive strategies
- methods and tools used for implementation of the programme
- share capitalisation products
- share and promote best practises
- ensure continuous capitalisation process
- formalise lessons learned
- formalise recommendations for new development projects

The workshop TORS as well as background documentation for the workshop can be found on the FIDAFRIQUE page.

Regular updates on the workshop will also be posted.
