In June 2005, REDL, a Malian network of 12 development organisations working in local governance and the Malian Ministry of Local Government and Territorial Administration initiated a “process of capitalisation”. The process aimed to:
Firstly, a methodological approach to joint stocktaking and analysis of experiences was developed with local stakeholders.
Secondly, case study teams were formed at the country level. They prepared eleven studies on a diverse set of innovative experiences with approaches and tools for monitoring and evaluating the effects and impacts of outcomes of decentralisation and local governance on poverty reduction and local development.
Thirdly, support was mobilised for a regional seminar. This event was held in May 2006 in Bamako, Mali with more than 100 participants from local and central governments, civil society, private sector and development organisations. They came from from 6 West African countries (Benin, Burkina Faso, Cameroon, Ghana, Mali and Niger).
The following development organizations, who are all members of the REDL network, contributed to this activity:
