IFRS for SMEs Train the Trainers Workshop in Douala, Cameroon
The IFRS Foundation will facilitate a three-day IFRS for SMEs ‘train the trainers’ workshop in West Africa. The event is sponsored by the World Bank and the OHADA (L’Organisation pour l’Harmonisation en Afrique du Droit des Affaires) Commission in Douala, Cameroon, from 17 to 19 April 2012.
The workshop is designed to support informed adoption decisions and to build capacity to apply the IFRS for SMEs rigorously and consistently by training local trainers to train others in their respective jurisdictions to apply the requirements.
The instructors will be Gilbert Gélard (former IASB member) and Michael Wells (Director, IFRS Education Initiative, IASB). Participants are expected from across OHADA including Benin, Burkina Faso, Cameroon, Central African Republic, Chad, Comoros, Republic of the Congo, Côte d’Ivoire, Equatorial Guinea, Gabon, Guinea, Guinea-Bissau, Mali, Niger, Senegal, Togo and the Democratic Republic of Congo (candidate for membership).
After the workshop the French-language translation of the workshop material (including the 1,000+ PowerPoint® slides) will be free to download from the Train the trainers workshop page.
The IFRS Foundation is grateful to the World Bank and the OHADA Commission for organising and funding the workshop and to the World Bank for funding the French-language translation of the workshop materials.
