ICF increases project and financial management capacity in its projects
March 04, 2013
The Investment Climate Facility for Africa held its third knowledge sharing workshop on project management and accounting in Johannesburg, South Africa from the 27th of February to 1st of March 2013.
The workshop, which brought together participants from eight African countries, served as a platform for learning best practices in project management, financial controls, reporting, and audit recommendations tracking. The 28 participants who attended were able to share experiences from their respective projects, to learn from each other and to network.
Participants appreciated ICF’s initiative to build their capacity. All agreed that the information provided in the workshop can and will enable them to improve the quality of their financial reports and enhance financial controls within project. They appreciated the opportunity to learn from counterparts from other African countries and encouraged ICF to provide more knowledge sharing opportunities in the future.
The workshop was mainly aimed at Anglophone countries in which ICF projects are currently being implemented. Countries represented included Ethiopia, Kenya, Mauritius, Mozambique, Nigeria, Rwanda, Tanzania and Zambia.
ICF promotes knowledge sharing as a way of ensuring practical and proven experiences from other African countries are used to facilitate reforms.
