A first-ever regional AFR100 Technical Partners (TP) Meeting was held in Dakar, Senegal on 28th and 29th of May 2019 under the auspices of the African Union Development Agency (AUDA-NEPAD). The workshop convened over thirty (30) participants, mostly senior managers, from prominent international institutions representing the United Nations (UN) agencies, International Non-Governmental Organizations (INGOs), Non-governmental Organizations (NGOs), the private sector, as well as three AFR100 country focal points (Ghana, Cameroon, Senegal).

The overall objectives of the two-day workshop were to take stock of the status of Forest Landscape Restoration (FLR) implementation conducted or supported by technical partners in AFR100 partner countries, to develop a clear and common understanding of what it means to be a Technical Partner (TP) of AFR100 and to develop joint strategies for effective partnership. The outcomes of the workshop were designed to contribute towards strengthening strategic partnerships between various Technical Partners (TPs) and other relevant partner institutions, for a more coordinated implementation of AFR100.
