2017 Regional workshop - West Africa

Regional Workshop in Mali participants' group picture GNDR

From 11th to 13th December 2017,  members from West Africa attended GNDR's regional workshop in Bamako, Mali for an update on the organisation ongoing activities and discuss the network’s impact both at global and regional level.

The workshop entitled “Stronger Together for a resilient development” encouraged GNDR members to share their DRR experiences to support the development of resilient communities.

The Regional workshop aimed at:
  • Improving the understanding of members on GNDR
  • Informing our members of their role and GNDR’s ongoing activities
  • Planning for regional upcoming activities
  • Creating a space for GNDR members to share experiences and perspectives from different countries on the most effective way to build partnerships between the private sector, governments and Civil Society Organisations (CSOs) .

Over 30 participants from GNDR’s countries of intervention in the region participated. Hosted by GNDR’s regional partner (AFAD-Mali) and organised by our Regional Development Coordinator, Adessou Kossivi, the workshop has been a great opportunity for members to identify avenues of collaboration.
