The People’s Coalition on Food Sovereignty (PCFS) is organizing an Africa-wide Regional Multistakeholder Forum on Aid and Development Effectiveness on Agriculture and Rural Development to be held in Dar Es Salaam, Tanzania on April 7-8, 2011. The event will be hosted by the United Republic of Tanzania’s Ministry of Finance.

A CSO consultation meeting will be held on the 7th of April, also in Dar Es Salaam, prior to the multistakeholder forum. Twenty-six CSOs from 19 countries in Africa will be joined by representatives from Asia, the Americas and Europe to discuss and debate on aid effectiveness issues relating to ARD initiatives and programs.
