Benefits of a Country CoP
To increase the AfCoP’s impact at the national level eight AfCoP national chapters have been established CoPs. and nine more are planned for 2013. They are autonomous bodies developed in partnership with the local Ministry of Finance and Planning, implemented, managed and maintained by the country. They aim at building national MfDR capacities and at advancing the MfDR agenda nationally, with a focus on government officials, through networking, training sessions and mechanisms to lobby governments and development organizations to make programs and structures more results-oriented.
The national CoPs contribute to: (i) instilling results culture at country level; (ii) strengthening the capacity of the national development process stakeholders on both the supply and the demand sides of MfDR, hence equipping them to engage on policy dialogue; (iii) influencing key policy processes for achieving development results through advocacy and increased dialogue with governments and donors; and (iv) carrying out research and analysis aiming at promoting evidence-based decision making.
