By ITeM MONTEVIDEO, Uruguay, 31 March 2006
The annual coordination meeting of IFIwatchnet took place March 7th-9th in Montevideo, Uruguay. The meeting was organised by the project’s current coordinator, APC member, ITeM (Third World Institute). The members of the executive committee and regional outreach coordinators participated in this encounter.
This was the first meeting of IFIwatchnet since ITeM assumed management over this initiative in August 2004 (it was previously coordinated by the Bretton Woods Project, in England). The objectives of IFIwatchnet in this new phase include:
a. To continue offering participating organisations access to information, sharing it and disseminating it among different monitoring groups.
b. To raise awareness among the participants on the updated results and activities of the rest of the members of the network in order to improve the coordination of activities and the identification of points of synergy.
c. To contribute to the long-term strengthening and effectiveness of the network.
