Printer-friendly versionPrinter-friendly version

The CLTS Knowledge Hub at IDS is hosting a one day CLTS Sharing and Learning workshop on the 30th June, the day before the main WEDC Conference in Nakuru, Kenya. If you or your colleagues will be attending the conference, please join us for this opportunity to meet with others engaged and interested in CLTS, share experiences, challenges, innovations and challenges, and discuss any issues that you might bring to the table. If you are interested in attending, please register with your name, title, organisation and country by sending an email to Naomi Vernon We will then be in touch with further details. The free event which includes refreshments and lunch will take place at the Merica Hotel, Kenyatta Avenue, Nakuru, Kenya.

As part of the main conference, there will also be a side event on CLTS on Thursday 4th July entitled CLTS: taking stock, challenges, innovations, and ways forward

This side event will draw on contributions from conference participants, Kamal Kar and Robert Chambers.  It will draw on contributions and findings from a pre-conference CLTS sharing and reflection workshop to be held on Sunday 30 June.  It will have three objectives.  First, unless these have been covered in Conference plenary, to take stock briefly with an overview of the current situation with the spread of CLTS in the world and the current state of knowledge from research.  Second, to outline some of the major challenges faced and to provide space for participants to share significant innovations in CLTS for confronting these. These will have emerged and been identified in the pre-conference workshop and the Conference proper, and are likely to include Government experiences in seeking to go to scale with quality, dimensions of sustainability, and issues of monitoring and verification.  Third, to identify actions and ways forward.   In the time available, all presentations will be brief and to the extent possible will provide participants with information and contacts for follow up, finding out more, and sharing their own experiences.  This session is designed to be useful both for those coming new to CLTS and to those engaged with CLTS policy and practice.   

There will also be a CLTS exhibition stall with publications, materials and opportunities to meet and talk to other CLTS practitioners
