This meeting was convened upon the request of the Resident Representative of the UNDP in Mauritaniato put into effect the recommendations of the previous AGI workshop and to familiarize the participants with the mechanisms of the AGI.

Mr. Alphonse Mékolo, Interregional Adviser for UNDESA, was on mission to follow-up the establishment of the support program with the National Programme for Good Governance. As a member of the AGI team, he provided a more comprehensive explanation of this significant initiative.

Following a presentation made byMr.Moktar Lam, of the Governance Unit/UNDP AGI Focal Point and Mr. Alphonse Mékolo, Interregional Adviser, there was a rich debate among the participants who reached the following conclusions:

  • The participants showed their interest in this significant initiative, expressing their opinions that it is a formidable tool for programming as well as a means to follow-up the evaluations of the government initiatives entered into the database.
  • They called attention to the potential bond between the NEPAD and the African Peer Review Mechanism (APRM) on which the sustainability of the initiative will rely.
  • They recognized that at this level, it is important to learn from the existing initiatives, in particular those of the ECA and of the African Development Bank, which have already established indicators, and to contribute to their application.

In addition, through a summary entitled “Source Book”, the UNDP has created a compilation of indicators which were developed worldwide by several international organizations, private universities and institutions. <
