Dear CEPS Members,
Representatives of your respective organisations are being invited to attend the Commonwealth profiling exercise which will be held at Avani Seychelles Barbarons Resort & Spa on 16 May 2016 from 1:30pm – 4:30pm.
The profiling exercise is a consultative engagement with the Commonwealth’s stakeholders, which involves short surveys from the public and private sectors and from civil society on fundamental issues related to social, economic, environment and governance. The vulnerability/resilience profiling exercise is conducted in small states and the Commonwealth has identified good governance as an overarching pillar because of its crucial role in policy enforcement. During the consultation, members of the civil society will provide their perspectives and experiences on the current state of social, economic and environmental governance in the country and present the sector’s perspectives on what has been the dominant policy challenges as well as perspectives on the key drivers for strengthening the resilience in Seychelles. The aim of the exercise therefore is to identify gaps, prioritise areas for improvement in line with the national development plan and in close collaboration with the Government of Seychelles, the Secretariat will develop a program of action with a view to strengthen resilience.
Attached is the invitation letter, provisional agenda and a resilience profiling note for your review and circulation to other representatives of the civil society.
Kindly confirm your participation by Thursday 28th of May by reply email or by calling us on 4325550/2.
