The Paris-Cotonou-Abidjan project (PCA) held its last Subregional seminar at Cotonou on February 19th, 2015

Agrisud accompanied this capacity building project of municipal knowledge concerning land-use development and planning of vulnerable urban areas from 2012 to 2015. The support given by Agrisud was focused on building local skills in terms of assembling, implementing, evaluating, capitalizing development projects and communicating on them (the training was conducted in December 2012). The goal was also to support the assembly process and project implementation on the driver sites (2 in Abidjan and one in Cotonou) and finally to create capitalization records (a valuable baseline reference for any action carried in vulnerable urban areas).IMG_5963Rogn

The project’ partnering communities in this North-South-South cooperation (Paris, Cotonou and Abidjan) were able to share the project’s achievements with 13 other Western African communities: Dakar, Bamako, Ouagadougou, Lome Porto Novo, Abomey, Calavi, Cocody Adjamé, Man, Attécoubé, Grand Bassam and Grand Lahou.

The capitalization issue – Summary of items for action in Abidjan’s vulnerable urban area – is available here – and here for Cotonou.
