From its inception, Africom was structured with stability operations, including conflict prevention, in mind. Unlike other combatant commands, Africom was expressly designed to take a "whole-of-government" approach, with senior civilian officials from the State Department, the U.S. Agency for International Development, and other agencies fully integrated into the command's decision-making structure.

Sharpening our understanding of decentralisation

During the concluding day of the seminar a ‘Grand Panel” was organised with three leading experts in the field of decentralisation: François Vaillancourt (CIRANO and Université de Montréal), Prof. Leonardo Romeo (New York University) and Jean Pierre Elong Mbassi (Secretary General of the United Cities and Local Governments of Africa, UCLGA). The panel sought to address three major questions: Why should donor agencies care more about decentralisation? How can decentralisation be “instrumental” to development? How can donor agencies like the EU provide smart support to decentralisation? This note summarises the main outcomes of the intense and thought-provoking debate , which carried important strategic and operational messages for EU development practitioners across the board.

Civil Society Organizations in Climate Change Policy Dynamics in Nepal: How Representative and Inclusive is the Process? | NGOs in Human Rights, Peace and Development | Scoop.it

Abstract
Climate change is the hottest environmental issue in Nepal on which Civil Society Organizations (CSOs) are intensively involved. Recently, various international and development agencies, bi-lateral and multi-lateral development programs, and government agencies have been advocating for the involvement of CSOs on various policy forums in order to make the policy process more deliberative and democratic. Consequently, some representatives of CSOs have been participating in these policy forums and programs. ...
Key words: Civil Society Organizations (CSOs), climate change, climate change governance, climate change policy process, CSOs' involvement.

Last week, the LEDS Global Partnership – launched in early 2011 and comprised of 30 governmental and international institutions – held a workshop on the topic in Chesham, U.K. WRI is a member of the steering committee of the LEDS Global Partnership and attended the meeting. Others in attendance included government representatives, donors, and representatives from research institutions.
