Thanks Rituu for the invitation. This is a good forum way of engagement and sharing. I wish to be part of the group number 4. Tools/approaches Task group.

Thank you for this initiative. It will go along way in strengthening gender and evaluation. Since we can only join one group, I will join the Capacity Development Task group.

Can one change later for any reason at all?
