Among the speakers were Iwith.org and many of its beneficiaries.

The Spanish United Nations Association, ANUE, concerned with the lower and lower and less effective international contribution to development organized in Barcelona a two-week course named ‘Tools for Development: Renewing Aid for Africa’ with the purpose of launching a new model of International Contribution to Development that makes the most of the aid given implying new actors, new tools and adapted to the new circumstances of developing countries.

The course was given by academic and United Nations experts in International Contribution to Development and was divided into three sections dealing with both basic and general issues related to the International Contribution to Development and new challenges and tools for the International Contribution with actual examples from Africa.
