CDPs and NINGO Joint Meeting

The Agents for Citizen-Driven Transformation (ACT) programme continues to strategically strengthen the Capacity Development Providers (CDPs) that work to facilitate delivery of the programme’s results. A one-day learning event organised by ACT exposed the CDPs to the Promoting Local Response Capacity and Partnership (PLRCAP), an initiative of the Nigeria International Non-Governmental Organisation (NINGO) forum. The event, held in Abuja on 26th July 2022, helped to create linkage between the CDPs and the NINGO and to map out strategies for collaboration.

At the end of the event, both parties agreed on a regular joint global webinar where Civil Society Organisations, Community- and Faith-Based Organisations and Non-Governmental Organisations are exposed to thematic learning points that help them deliver sustainable results. The duo as well envisaged a database of capacity development providers and the revitalisation of a Community of Practice to further strengthen organisations for sustainable development.

CDPs represented at the event include Cloneshouse, Centre for Information Technology and Development (CITAD), Aminu Kano Centre for Democratic Research and Training, Mambayya House, The Education Partnership (TEP) Centre, Tom Associates, American University of Nigeria, University of Benin Observatory Centre, ICentra, Centre for Management and Development (CMD) and Women Aid Collective (WACOL).
