On the 29th of January 2021 we had an opportunity to engage several Civil Society Organisations (CSOs) during a project planning meeting via Zoom. The main agenda of this meeting was to introduce the Zimbabwe APRM Popular Sensitisation Project (ZAPS) the partners, explain how it will work and provide a background of the rules and processes of the African Peer Review Mechanism (APRM), Africa’s governance promotion and measurement instrument.

The aim of the ZAPS aim is to enhance the participation of CSOs in Zimbabwe’s APRM process, through capacity building, fostering better knowledge of the APRM and its rules and opportunities, and developing a written submission on the key governance issues in Zimbabwe. The project has been adapted to take into account COVID-19 restrictions.
