NEW: Free training webinar on Multi-Stakeholder Working | 13th June

Join us for another free training webinar on multi-stakeholder working on Tuesday 13th June at 9am EDT. This online event, held is collaboration with the World Bank, after our successful introductory session in May with over 200 people.

Greater transparency and participation can potentially strengthen accountability in public procurement, leading to more efficiency and quality infrastructure. However, the process of the planning and delivery of public infrastructure is particularly complex, and considering the behaviours, and needs of those involved in the process can be helpful. This requires building on the perspective of government, private companies that deliver the infrastructure, and of the intended users of the infrastructure and related services.

The impact of improving multi-stakeholder is clear from the work of CoST, such as the President of Malawi, His Excellency Dr. Lazarus McCarthy Chakwera, being appointed as the new Champion of CoST Malawi; CoST’s Guidance on Multi-Stakeholder working and training programmes for hundreds of journalists and civil society organisations across countries four continents.

We will be joined by Hamish Goldie-Scot, our Technical Adviser and Richard Calland, a long-term advisor to CoST, Associate Professor of Public Law at the University of Cape Town and a Fellow of the Cambridge Institute for Sustainability Leadership, as well as Majed El-Bayya, Lead Procurement Specialist, EGVPF and Adenike Sherifat Oyeyiola, Practice Manager, Governance Global Practice, both from the World Bank. During these two hours, we’ll teach you relevant tools and guidance for Multi-Stakeholder working and you’ll have the option to apply helpful realistic scenarios that you can apply this approach to.
