With the goal of promoting mutual learning and understanding on pro-poor growth among donors and partner countries, we work with a range of training partners to contribute to a series of learning events designed to encourage participants to analyse and discuss practical policy measures that support the engagement of poor women and men in economic growth.
Designed for hands-on practitioners - donor and government staff, the private sector and civil society - the courses are structured around core content on pro-poor growth but also contain modules specifically tailored to each individual country. In each course the goal is to provide practical experience and “how-to” suggestions that participants can use in their day-to-day work. Each event encourages participants to share their lessons and professional insights on:
GIZ Eschborn acts as the lead agency on behalf of the Train4Dev Joint Donors’ Competence Development Network and POVNET, and has contracted the Overseas Development Institute and ITAD to develop the course design and course materials as well as to act as the training provider. After pilot learning events in Tanzania in October 2009 and in Benin in November 2010, the programme is now being rolled out with the next courses being planned for Nepal and Nicaragua.
