Introduction

On Wednesday 8th February 2006 the Civil Society for Poverty Reduction (CSPR), in partnership with the Southern Africa Regional Poverty Network (SARPN) hosted a one-day civil society consultation meeting to discuss the commitments and recommendations contained in the Commission for Africa (CFA) Report. The meeting was attended by 15 selected civil society organizations in Zambia.

The objectives of the meeting were to ascertain;

  • The extent to which civil society actors are following up on or monitoring the commitments made in the CFA report.
  • The extent of civil society implementation of their own commitments
  • Civil society challenges and expectations in this regard
Mrs. Besinati Mpepo from CSPR welcomed the participants to the meeting. She stressed the need for members to be more involved in following up national commitments, implementation and monitoring development initiatives. She further implored members to reflect on the Commission For Africa implementation and give input in line with their experiences.
