This is very commendable and an extremely important initiative. Thank you for sharing and educating us. I wish to suggest that in future, organizers of such forums extend invitation to AfCOP as a body which may then extend invitation to the National Communities of Practice. The reason being that currently coordination of MfDR activities in many countries is still fragmented. So when information is only through the mainstream government structures it may miss some key players. If every country that was represented did what you have done, and contextualised their MfDR practices, then MfDR would be getting more converts and support which is critical for its success. Involvement of AfCOP and National COPs is not only critical for advocacy but also knowledge sharing and learning. Once again thanks to you Chola,
Dear Mr Obong'o,
The point you have raised is very pertinent - we have to factor in these issues in future.
