DESIGN THINKING WORKSHOP ON CIVIL SOCIETY ENGAGEMENT CAPACITY BUILDING.

In accordance with the African Development Bank (AfDB) program of bank’s engagement with civil society. AFDB had designed an action plan to lay the groundwork for effective engagement with civil society. The Action Plan includes capacity building as a means of providing civil society with information, knowledge and skills that are essential for actual engagement.

This includes strengthening internal capacity on civil society engagement (CSE) as well as building the capacity of civil society organisations and actors to engage with the Bank on its development agenda.

It is in this regard a design thinking workshop on civil society engagement capacity building was organised by AFDB to bring together civil society, private and public institutions to identify strategic approaches to strengthen capacity on civil society’s engagement.
