CPA UK & Mozambique
CPA UK has engaged with the Assembleia da República through its contribution to The Westminster Consortium (TWC) project between 2008 and 2013. During this time, CPA UK delivered a number of activities, including Westminster programmes on Freedom of Information and Environmental Committee work, and a Seminar in Maputo for the Committee on Environment, Gender and Social Affairs in October 2011.
When the TWC programme ended, there was a clear desire for continued cooperation with CPA UK. Since then, CPA UK delivered four programmes for MPs and officials from Mozambique, focusing on a variety of issues from committee skills to violence against women.
