|Mr. Nils Boesen|
Boesen has engaged in international development for more than 25 years with expertise in CD, governance and other related fields. He has been playing a key role in globally mainstreaming CD concept as well as in refining and facilitating its practical method. As JICA has been the long partner of UNDP on CD agenda, this event introduced how the multi-lateral organization is working on CD concept and approaches as well as disseminating them for more effective development assistance such as through offering opportunities for wide stakeholders to learn and exchange perspectives on CD.
In his opening remarks, JICA-RI Director Akio Hosono mentioned the past close collaboration between UNDP and JICA including a series of joint international forums on CD, and stated: “I expect this open seminar to enhance our further collaboration in the future.”
Following Hosono’s remarks, Boesen first asked the participants to do small-group discussion to encourage the sharing of their ideas or queries on CD. Then he introduced a basic CD model in light of those ideas and queries raised during small group discussion.
Lastly Boesen led lively discussions on other CD aspects, such as monitoring and evaluation, or the human resources for CD assistance.
