Learn4Dev Annual Meeting

Learn4Dev Annual Meeting

From 15th to 17th June 2015 the annual meeting of the learn4dev network took place in East Kilbride, Scotland, co-organised by DFID and the European Commission. The focus of this year´s meeting was on learning together for sustainable development, the Post 2015 Agenda and the new challenges it imposes.

Main objectives of this year’s annual meeting were amongst others to set the direction of the network for the coming year, to carry out the processes needed for effective and continued governance of the network and to explore how organizational learning and the learn4dev network can be used to adapt to the post-2015 agenda.

Around 35 participants from learn4dev member organizations and several key note speakers took part in the very participatory three day event. The DeLoG secretariat – representing the learn4Dev Expert Group on Decentralisation and Local Governance – focused in its reporting on its latest and improved e-learning course format.

Key questions of the event, which will be further elaborated on in the coming future, covered e.g. the engagement of new donors and south-south engagement in learning and capacity development as well as whether the existing expert groups sufficiently address the important issues for organizational learning.

More information on the annual meeting can be found on the learn4dev website.
