IGAD Support to Public Administration Project to Hold Annual Review Workshop with Current Civil Service Support Officers from Ethiopia, Kenya, and Uganda

A review workshop for Civil Service Support Officers (CSSOs) currently deployed across South Sudan to help support public administration, is taking place on Thursday, December 8 at Dembesh Hotel from 9:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. This workshop will bring together the highly qualified and experienced CSSOs for an annual meeting to share experiences, successes, and challenges of the programme. The CSSOs, as well as representatives from Ministry of Labour, Public Service and Human Resource Development and UNDP, will be on hand to speak to media about the initiative. The CSSOs come from Ethiopia, Kenya, and Uganda and pair with national local civil servants (or “twins”) to provide mentorship and capacity building, as part of this Inter-Governmental Authority on Development (IGAD) Initiative Project. The ultimate aim is to help build a professional, accountable and impartial public service in South Sudan, which is critical for stability, nation-building and state-building as part of the peace agreement. The project is funded solely by the Government of Norway.What: Annual Review Workshop for CSSOs of the IGAD Initiative ProjectWhen: Thursday, December 8 at 9:00 a.m.Where: Dembesh HotelWho:       Civil Service Support Officers participating in the IGAD Initiative Project from Ethiopia, Kenya, and Uganda Representatives from the Ministry of Labour, Public Service & Human Resource Development Representatives from UNDPFor further information, please contact: Kymberly Bays, UNDP, [email protected] and +211 954 396 893.        Distributed by APO on behalf of United Nations Development Programme (UNDP).Media filesDownload logo
