Technical assistance mission in Mauritania
Delivery Units, catalyst for emergence in Africa!
From January 29 to February 2, 2023, the Operational Monitoring Office – Delivery Unit of Senegal – carried out a scoping mission at the invitation of its counterpart in Mauritania (CSEPS), with a view to providing technical assistance to them on the prioritization and structuring large projects.
These discussions were initiated during the 1st African Forum of Delivery Units which was held in Dakar in November 2023.
As part of the activities of the Center of Excellence set up by the African Development Bank and hosted at the BOS/PSE, benchmarking and technical assistance missions are carried out to serve as a framework for exchanges, sharing of experiences and strengthening of capacities for the emergence of Africa, and especially the consolidation of intra-African cooperation.
During this mission, we met several entities of the Mauritanian Government (ministries and agencies), the national private sector, development partners as well as civil society. The high-level meeting with the Minister of Economy and Sustainable Development, in the presence of the Ambassador of Senegal to Mauritania and the UNDP Resident Representative, was one of the highlights of the agenda.
Senegal as an inspiring example for its African peers!
Senegal has emerged as a Delivery Unit model to follow as an example in Africa.
By supporting the implementation of the priorities of the Emerging Senegal Plan for 10 years, the BOS has demonstrated its ability to transform ambitious objectives into concrete achievements.
The focus on the country's priorities, technical and financial structuring, close monitoring and problem solving, and the evaluation of socio-economic impacts, all this done in a participatory and inclusive manner, were the main key factors of success. .
The mission to Mauritania allowed for great exchanges and outlined interesting perspectives that will anchor their Delivery Unit (CSEPS) as a driving force for the realization of national aspirations in terms of emergence.
