*15:00 - 16:30 UTC/GMT (New York 11AM - Paris 5PM - Moscow 7PM) / For details please visit: http://www.lencd.org/webinars  * There is strong support for regionalism and economic integration in Africa as a strategy for advancing its socio-economic endeavors, but previous attempts have yielded minimal economic benefits. For Africa to realize regionalism and economic integration, the ‘New’ regionalism has to address past failures (e.g. multiplicity and overlapping membership, reliance on donor funds and lack of commitment among others). This ACBF/AfCoP webinar focuses on the capacity development dynamics impacting this continental agenda. Presentations: * Regional value chains and productivity enhancements: the cases of rice and cacao in West Africa - Professor William Moseley * Regional security by observation: assessing regional responses to the Boko Haram crisis - Dr. Olawale Ismail  http://www.lencd.org/webinars
