MDA WG update: November 2007

13th December 2007

Ten members of the MDA WG met by teleconference on November 29 to review progress on the seven workstreams that comprise their newly developed workplan. One of the workstreams focuses on the long-term WG aim to facilitate a more conducive environment in-country for the private sector. This issue is already leading to strong inter-agency collaboration within the WG--particularly between USAID and UNFPA.

The group also discussed the development of an innovative user-generated knowledge-sharing tool--a type of MDA "Wikipedia". A sub-group will work on this and report back to the WG at their next teleconference on January 15. Another subgroup was charged with working on MDA WG Management and Structure and developing a plan for discussion during the first quarter of 2008.
