  • Description

This report was prepared for presentation to the proceedings and key outputs from the Summit of Civil Society Organizations of Africa held at UN-Habitat in Nairobi, from 17th to 19th January 2007. The African Summit of CSOs aimed at strengthening networking and building the voice of African CSOs by creating a loosely structured continental platform during which they could exchange views and inform one another's understanding of issues that affect African development. This would serve to consolidate the emerging Civil Society network on the continent, presenting CSOs as credible, legitimate and accountable actors in development.
