Africa Regional Network:

2016 Africa FIG Regional network: West Africa Capacity development workshop

16-18 November 2016 , Abidjan, Ivory Coast

Ensuring Good Land Governance Practices in the Land Profession and What you can do about it

This is a great opportunity to partner with the Federation des Geometres Francophione (FGF) and visit the Ivory Coast, a Franco-phone African nation. 

ARN will continue to build upon our previous successful workshops where you

  • Participate in International and African continental wide initiatives that affect you and your everyday working lives,
  • Deliberate on key skills for leadership learning
  • Introduced to the latest in technical instruments.  In the recent past we’ve been sponsored by FIG corporate members, Thompson Reuters and Trimble, and there are more interested to support us! 
  • Continue and build new friendships, networks and ideas.

Over the three day event, we will be holding the ARN workshop in English and will appeal to those wishing to have an understanding of the International land governance initiatives, and those working in land survey, valuation, QS, Urban management, planning, engineering, design and bridging across to societal benefit. 

The program will be designed in parallel with ARN and FGF activities, although we will come together at various stages to join across Anglophone and Francophone networks thereby exposing you to a greater and diverse number of people - it will be informative, productive and above all mixed with some fun as we will conclude with the opportunity of a joint sightseeing and field trip.

Our partners are to be fully engaged:  

  • FAO will be supporting on the main workshop theme agreed in ARN’s business plan, and ratified by General Assembly. 
  • The YSN Africa will be assisting with content delivery.
  • And FGF will be coordinating the logistics and assisting you to navigate around the city. 

We are all looking forward to welcome you in West Africa for highly stimulating days in the company of great networks.

A preliminary program and registration form will soon be available, do watch out for further updates in the next few weeks– Registrations will need to be concluded by 9th September 2016.
Look forward to meeting you November 2016

Diane Dumashie, Chair
