Informal Donor Meeting 2011

Phnom Penh, Cambodia, 23rd Jun 2011 - 24th Jun 2011

This meeting served as the platform for development partners and cooperations organisations to riview the MRC’s past year’s activities that had contributed to addressing current developments in the Mekong Basin.

Donors, countries take stock and plan next steps

Over 55 participants from around the Mekong region, including country delegates and 23 development partners' representatives, met in Phnom Penh to review MRC’s activities that had taken place over the past year. The meeting served as a platform for the MRC, its Member Countries and its Development Partners to not only reflect on lessons learned from the past year, but to discuss the future directions of the organisation.

Development Partners expressed strong support towards the MRC’s new Strategic Plan 2011-2015, which sets out the organisation’s goals to increase country ownership through decentralisation and improved aid effectiveness. These two goals are among many that are outlined in the Strategic Plan.

Over the 2-day meeting, Development Partners and Member Countries collaborated on ways to achieve the organisation’s strategic goals for 2011-2015.
