Within the context of Malian civil society's efforts to anchor transitional justice, the Malian Coalition of Human Rights Defenders (COMADDH) is organizing a national workshop from November 6 – 8, 2013 at the Grand Hotel in Bamako.
Co-chaired by the Ministry of Justice and the Ministry of National Reconciliation and Development in the Northern Regions, the workshop aims to strengthen the institutional capacity of civil society to enable a better anchoring of transitional justice with the dual objective of rebuilding the social fabric of Malian society and engaging communities in the process of comprehensive and harmonious development.
The workshop was made possible through the support of TrustAfrica and will bring together organizations from Kayes, Koulikoro, Sikasso, Segou, Mopti, Timbuktu, Gao, Kidal and the District of Bamako.
Let us work together for a Mali where the rule of law prevails, reconciled and engaged in the battle for development.
As part of our Agricultural Development program, TrustAfrica, in partnership with the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation, will be holding a two-day convening at the Laico Regency Hotel in Nairobi, Kenya on November 12-13, 2013. The convening, "A Decade of CAADP: Reflections on Key Outcomes of Agricultural Policy Reforms in Africa," aims to raise awareness about the role of agriculture in development and to give voice to those most affected by agricultural development policies, particularly smallholder farmers. The convening will include civil society stakeholders from the Agricultural Development project, as well as others engaged around agricultural policymaking.
