Roselynn Musa elected as Africa CSO Representative

Mr. Aurelien Atidegla & Roselynn Musa

By Hannah Ondiek

Join FEMNET in congratulating Roselynn Musa the Programme Manager at the FEMNET Secretariat on her election as the Africa CSO Representative to the Global Governance Structure on Development Effectiveness during the Africa CSO Meeting Post-Busan in Nairobi, Kenya on 12th-13th July 2012. The meeting was attended by heads and representatives of CSO’s and religious leaders from all regions in Sub-Saharan Africa. The meeting was a follow up to the Fourth High Level Forum on Aid Effectiveness held in Busan, South Korea on 29th November to 1st December 2011.

The importance of CSO’s involvement in the Development Effectiveness agenda is vital. The conference in Busan gave CSO’s an important role as the key drivers of the agenda since they have equal responsibility as Governments, Private sector and all other actors in its implementation. A rights based approach should be the basis of Development work according to CSO’s who also recognize that there are both responsibilities and challenges in its implementation especially at regional, sub-regional and national levels.

FEMNET was one of the co organizers of the conference together with Reality of Aid Africa Network , Uganda National NGO Forum, Open Forum for CSO Development Effectiveness and Better Aid.

It is important to note that gender equality and women’s rights saw a major boost in the Busan Partnership and also in the CSO Partnership for Development Effectiveness (CPDE) draft document that was adopted by the delegates at the Nairobi Conference on 13th July 2012.

We applaud Roselynn on her appointment and we wish her the best as she takes on this role. We acknowledge that there are challenges ahead for her but we know she will give her best and work on the Development Effectiveness in Africa to advance women’s rights and gender equality.
