This synoptic analysis covers issues examined at the two meetings of the Intergovernmental Committee of Experts held in 2000 and 2001, including recommendations and decisions. The full report for each of these meetings is available in the Documentation Centre. Within the context of the new mandate of the Sub-regional Development Centres (SRDC), adopted by the Conference of Ministers at its 23rd Session, one of their major functions is to undertake policy dialogues in their respective subregions. The fundamental purpose of these dialogues is to provide a forum for exchange of views among key players in the policymaking process and for interactions between them and other stakeholders in African development. Debate and discussion are expected to focus primarily on issues contained in major policy statements adopted at the regional level, in relation to objective conditions and concrete experiences at the national and sub-regional levels.
