1. Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations Forum: Technical Consultation on Decentralization :
  THE TECHNICAL Consultation on Decentralization (TCD) was sponsored by the Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations (FAO), the United Nations Capital Development Fund (UNCDF), the International Fund for Agricultural Development (IFAD), the German Agency for Technical Cooperation (GTZ), the Swiss Agency for Development and Cooperation (SDC) and the World Bank (WB). The TCD brought together policy-makers, practitioners and academics from the developed and developing world to review and discuss the contribution of decentralized and participatory strategies to rural development. To achieve this goal the TCD was structured into working groups organized around selected themes. The TCD also included four presentations by key speakers and a poster session.
2. United Nations Capital Development Fund :
  Established in 1966 as a special purpose fund primarily for small-scale investment in the poorest countries, the United Nations Capital Development Fund (UNCDF) has come in recent years through intense, necessary and far-reaching changes. Today, UNCDF works to help eradicate poverty through local development programmes and microfinance operations. Through its focus on two areas of concentration, UNCDF has strengthened its identity and competence. That was the principal conclusion of the 1999 external evaluation of the Fund, subsequently endorsed by its Executive Board in September 1999.

By informing of the project while in its beginning phase, we hope to stimulate interest and to provide a platform for constructive exchange among fellow academics, policy-makers and organizations active in the field.
