Description and results

Description

This grant represents Canada’s institutional support to the Commonwealth Secretariat’s Commonwealth Fund for Technical Cooperation (CFTC). The Commonwealth Secretariat uses these funds, along with other donor funding, to achieve its mandate. The Commonwealth Secretariat’s mandate is to work as a trusted partner for all Commonwealth people as: a force for peace, democracy, equality, equity, respect and good governance; a catalyst for global consensus-building; and a source of assistance for sustainable development and poverty eradication. Canada’s support to the Commonwealth Secretariat contributes to achieving progress in democracy, rule of law, human rights, public sector development, economic development, environmentally sustainable development, and human development in developing countries across the Commonwealth.

Expected results

The expected intermediate outcomes include: Improved democratic practices, rule of law and respect for human rights by Commonwealth country governments; and, strengthened development and implementation of pro-poor economic growth and sustainable development policies and programs, which integrate gender equality, human rights and youth considerations.

Results achieved

Results achieved as of 2011 include: seven Member Countries ratified or adopted eight different human rights agreements and conventions, ranging from protecting the rights of children to persons with disabilities to protecting political rights; Commonwealth teams were deployed to observe and assess elections in Zambia, Cameroon, The Gambia, St Lucia, and Guyana; Secretariat assistance enabled Malawi to reform its legislative, regulatory and institutional arrangements for its petroleum sector, and Botswana to prepare a modern Natural Gas Policy and Gas Bill to facilitate the creation of a new coal-bed methane industry; four Caribbean countries developed national and regional policy frameworks and associated legislation for Maritime and Ocean Governance to build economic resilience, while contributing to better food security and improved livelihoods; and, the Caribbean Association of Debt Managers (CARADEM) was established to provide practical assistance to countries within the region in developing technical capability, and for meeting their core debt management objectives.
