Dialogue - Issue 05: Volume V: Strengthening linkages through networking

Highlights 

This issue celebrates the Strategic Analysis Knowledge Support System for Southern Africa (SAKSS-SA) regional node meeting, the signing of the MOU with Crop-Life International, the submission of 2006 work-plans to USAID-RSCA, the submission of expressions of interest to Southern African Trust (SAT), meetings with Node Coordinators and the FANRPAN Board' as some of the key events in January. 

The signing of an MOU with a private sector organization reflects FANRPAN's continued thrust to create a multi-stakeholder platform for balanced engagement as a way of influencing policy. The submission of work-plans and expressions of interest is part of the on-going FANRPAN thrust to build the human and financial capacity of FANRPAN. The holding of the second Strategic Analysis Knowledge Support System for Southern Africa (SAKSS-SA) regional node meeting, especially in the presence of the new coordinator, was a strong indicator that Strategic Analysis Knowledge Support System for Southern Africa (SAKSS-SA) is back on track.
