The Workshop, which took place from 14 to 18 April 2013, was organized by the APRM Secretariat and the Strategic Partners of the APRM – UNDP and UNECA – in close collaboration with the APRM Focal Point for Sudan.
Participants in the Workshop included members of the National Governing Council of Sudan, Officials from the APRM Secretariat and Technical Research Institutes, Parliamentarians, as well as representatives from the public and private sectors, the Media and Civil Society Organisations in Sudan.
The main objectives of the Workshop were to enhance knowledge about APRM national structures, raise awareness of the APRM process and facilitate dialogue among national stakeholders.
Resource-persons from Nigeria and Algeria shared their countries’ experiences within the APRM framework and highlighted the importance of national stakeholders’ contribution to the effective implementation of the APRM process.
The Workshop came up with a Draft Road Map, Communication Strategy and Budget for the implementation of the APRM process in Sudan.
Sudan is expected to host an APRM Country Review Mission in 2014.
