SUNY/Zimbabwe Participates in UNDP Workshop for Zimbabwean Senators


From May 15-18, 2006, SUNY/ Zimbabwe participated in a four-day induction workshop for new Zimbabwean senators. The Zimbabwean Senate existed from 1980-1989 and was reinstituted in 2005. Funded by the United National Development Programme, the overall objective of the workshop was to provide senators a forum to contribute to strategies for making the Senate effective in the discharge of its legislative functions. Some of the key sessions included the following:

  • The role and functions of Parliament, especially with the introduction of a bicameral system
  • Overview of parliamentary reforms
  • Business of the House
  • The budget process
  • The committee system
  • Experiences with Parliamentary Constituency Information Centers

SUNY/CID-Zimbabwe led discussions on the budget process and also shared information and experiences about the committee system.
