On behalf of the United Nations Economic Commission for Africa (UNECA), Irene Onyancha (Chief, Library & Information Management Services, ICT/Science and Technology Division, UNECA and one of the experts of the AFRICA BUILD Project) invited us to Ethiopia to introduce the AFRICA BUILD Portal to the audience.

The CODIST-III (Third meeting of the Committee on Development Information Science and Technology) overall objective is twofold. First, the meeting will review ECA's activities in the area of Governance and Public Administration for the year 2012. Second, it will suggest relevant programmatic orientations and activities for the biennium 2014/2015 for the Commission to better assist African countries in addressing issues of Governance and public management.

This meeting evolved around the central theme of: "The Development State: What options for Africa?".

Our presentation was enclosed in the "Knowledge and Library and Information Services" (KLIS) Subcommittee, within the "New Trends" area.
