The African Development Community for Development Results (AfCoP) and the Ivorian Ministry of Planning and Development are working on Rapid Response Initiatives (RRIs), a specific methodology for conducting development projects within 100 days.
The African Development Community for Development Results (AfCoP), which has its secretariat at the African Development Bank (AfDB), in collaboration with the Ivorian Ministry of Planning and Development, organised a four-day workshop 24 to 28 April 2017 in Grand Bassam.
At the opening of the workshop, the Cabinet director of the Minister of Planning and Development recalled the commitment of the President of the Republic of Côte d’Ivoire, Alassane Ouattara, to promote the culture of results at all levels – The solemn declaration of the Government, signed on 25 July 2016 by the Prime Minister of Côte d’Ivoire, Daniel Kablan Duncan, and Kapoor Kapil, then vice-president of the AfDB.
More recently, on April 11, 2017, the government also adopted a Priority Action Plan (PAP) for the period 2017-2020, backed up by mission letters from the Head of Government for each of the ministers.
Using IRRs for the implementation of this PAP will help to accelerate the achievement of the targets set out in the National Development Plan 2016-2020, through the collaboration of various ministries trained in IRRs and administrative processes Faster.
It is in this perspective that representatives of the Presidency of the Republic of Côte d’Ivoire, the Prime Minister’s Office, the National Assembly and some 20 sector ministries have received training on IRR .
The objective was to raise awareness of the practice of MfDR and the so-called fast approach methodology; To enable participants to develop a work plan in this context; And to identify actions foreseen in the NDP, the various government work plans or the Priority Actions Plan, which can be the subject of IRRs.
With AfCoP , the Bank, whose mandate explicitly refers to the delivery of development results, continues to strengthen the capacity of its member countries to develop proven policies.
The project has no other purpose than to develop a results-oriented performance culture, which is a prerequisite for achieving real developmental impacts. The “Rapid Results Initiatives” methodology is a tool that helps to integrate MfDR in the countries of the continent, so as to achieve a change in the lives of Africans, in line with the AfDB’s Top Five priorities .
