Seminar on Collaboration between Bilateral and Multilateral Aid Agencies

2010: Urs Zollinger moderated a seminar - which he also helped design - on cooperation between SDC and multilateral organizations.

Urs Zollinger supported the Swiss Agency for Development and Cooperation (SDC) in developing a seminar on cooperation between SDC and multilateral organizations, which he then moderated. Through exchanging experience of past collaboration, the objective of the seminar was to improve the understanding of multilateral organizations’ planning, funding and implementation modalities in order to strengthen cooperation. SDC staff based in Africa and the Organization’s headquarters participated in the seminar in Maputo. They were joined by resource persons from the World Bank, the African Development Bank and UNDP. Participants rated the event very positively and suggested that it be repeated in other regions. Contact: Urs Zollinger
