Regional: Asia-Pacific Community of Practice on Managing for Development Results - From Concept to Practice

Sovereign Project | 39322-022

Summary

In essence, the Community of Practice's purpose is sustainable capacity building in DMCs. It is a communications network exclusively centered on MfDR, linking like-minded practitioners, experts, government planners and donor staff together. It will focus on problem-solving; the actual use of MfDR techniques; responding to calls for assistance from DMCs; promoting the demand for results based techniques; and linking problem-solvers with those in DMCs seeking to manage for development results.

The R-CDTA supports MfDR in DMCs through regional and country level activities. At the regional level, it supports a region-wide Asia-Pacific Community of Practice on MfDR. At the country level, it supports country-level CoPs on MfDR. Given interest shown to date and limited resources, the provisional list of countries to be supported:
