Initiated in 2017, the third edition of UCLG Africa’s annual retreat will be held from 18 to 21 February 2019 in Ifrane, at the Conference Center of the University of Al Akhawayne (Morocco).
This retreat provides a space for dialogue to reflect on how best the organization can help its members grow and how to strengthen their organizational capacities and abilities.
The meeting will be attended by all UCLG Africa staff (headquarters , regional offices: West Africa region, East Africa Region, Southern Africa region and ALGA Ouagadougou) and some partners.
The retreat has four main objectives:
– Develop a deeper understanding of the continental context;
– Refine the collective understanding of the purpose of UCLG Africa;
– Collectively assess the current state of the organization with a view to ongoing improvement;
– Clarify the roles, functions, skills and capacities that UCLG Africa will need to thrive.
The program includes workshop work, round tables and plenary sessions.
