INCLUDE enters a new phase
Dear reader,

INCLUDE is off to a good start this year. After six years of research, dialogue and knowledge brokering on inclusive development in Africa, we are happy to announce that the Ministry of Foreign Affairs continues to support the platform to broker knowledge to inform policy. We are excited to build upon the vast amount of knowledge that we have generated so far, as well as to continue working with the established network of the platform and its members. What does this mean for the platform’s activities? Read about it in this news item.
Another inspiring meeting was held on 10 January in the series of the ‘New roles of CSOs for inclusive development’ research programme meetings, commissioned by NWO-WOTRO. ‘Research for Dialogue & Dissent 2.0’ opened the floor for the research groups to present their initial findings, which scrutinize the assumptions underlying the Ministry of Foreign Affairs’ Dialogue & Dissent framework. The news item for this day is available on the website.

Kind regards,

INCLUDE Secretariat
