AIDNET takes the lead in implementing the CSO-led Plan on aid effectiveness

Yaounde AIDNET Group in Cameroon is mobilizing resources to facilitate the implementation of the CSO-led Plan, "Societe civile et mise en ceuvre de la Declaration de Paris et du Plan d’ Action d’ Accra-Plan d’action du Cameroun (Civil Society and implementation of the Paris Declaration and Plan of Action in Accra -Action Plan in Cameroon).  AIDNET is holding a series of Restitution Workshops to increase CSO awareness on PD and AAA and to encourage them to engage with other stakeholders towards aid and development effectiveness.

AIDNET has a core group of 10 CSO members/networks. It has actively participated in global and regional processes working on aid effectiveness such as the Open Forum on CSO Development Effectiveness and the Yaounde Regional CSO Consultation Workshop and Multi-Stakeholder Consultation in 2009. During this Workshop, AIDNET drafted an indicative CSO-led Plan to catalyze the broad implementation of PD and AAA in the country. COSADER acts as the secretariat of the AIDNET Group.

On January 18-19, 2011, AIDNET, in collaboration with IBON/RoA, will host a National Dialogue on the Results of PD Evaluation in Cameroon. This activity aims to critique the results of the PD Evaluation in Cameroon and is expected to provide recommendations in catalyzing the broad implementation of aid effectiveness in the country. AIDNET is also developing an inventory of dialogue mechanisms, which includes CSO participation and is involved in the production of a report on PD monitoring, principles, ownership and mutual accountability. These last two projects were made possible through the GTZ support.
