Two-day retreat at Groupe URD’s headquarters for “Team France”

Since 2011, Groupe URD has had a strategic and financial partnership with the French Ministry of Foreign Affairs and the French Development Agency. As such, we have provided our partners with support and analysis on issues related to crisis and post-crisis policies and operations. Each year, a two-day retreat is organized at Groupe URD’s headquarters in the south of France, a neutral environment that is conducive to discussion. This year’s session focused on the theme of “fragility and resilience”.

This seminar brought together representatives of the French Development Agency, the Ministry of Foreign Affairs (CDCS, DGM, DCSD) and Expertise France, who, together, are referred to as “Team France”. It contributed to making the group more coherent and complementary and recognizing the comparative advantages of its different members.

By encouraging exchanges between individuals, it helped to strengthen the ties between the different departments and institutions that are active in fragile contexts. A certain number of case studies were used to share lessons and experiences (Mali and Syria), and regular challenges in fragile and transition situations were identified.
