LenCD Partners Meeting 2011, Kigali

We are pleased to report that the LenCD Partners Meeting (10-12 February 2011 in Kigali, Rwanda) was a great success.  The new LenCD charter was adopted, the steering group was expanded to include broader representation from a greater diversity of organisations, and significant progress was made on several important initiatives in the LenCD work plan including sharpening our messages for the Busan high-level forum on aid effectiveness, developing a workplan for improving knowledge management across LenCD, developing a learning package on capacity development, and strengthening connections with and among regional networks. 

Many thanks to our hosts, the African Capacity Building Foundation (ACBF) and the Rwanda Public Sector Capacity Building Secretariat (PSCBS).  Thanks also to the LenCD network coordinating team and to the many workshop facilitators.
