PACA Biennial Partnership Platform meeting

The first PACA biennial Partnership Platform meeting is now confirmed to be held on 07-09 October, 2014 at the African Union Commission, Addis Ababa, Ethiopia. The meeting will be an opportunity where stakeholders can discuss how to engage and deepen partnerships to create synergies and alignment around current efforts on the continent. The Platform will also serve to share success stories among RECs and countries and to assess the potential for replication and synergy.

The 1st PACA PP will create a forum for the full array of stakeholders involved in the management of a­flatoxins – including: AUC, Regional Economic Communities (RECs), national governments, private sector, health organizations, regulators, civil society groups, and development partners – to:

  1. Embrace the refined PACA Mid-Term Strategic Plan as a driving instrument for attainment of results and impact;
  2. Share implementation challenges and receive input from stakeholders to enhance the effectiveness of PACA’s current activities;
  3. Exchange information, share experiences and lessons in afl­atoxin mitigation and management, including evidence from recent studies;
  4. Identify and deepen partnerships to create synergies and strengthen programs aligned with the PACA Strategy and Mid-Term Strategic Plan; and
  5. Engage all stakeholders to support all efforts in the fight against a­flatoxins on the African continent.

All stakeholders involved in mitigating and managing the aflatoxin problem in Africa are invited to join this Platform Meeting. PACA will send information on the registration process as soon as possible. We look forward to your participation.
