  • Explore approaches and tools for leveraging cross-country learning, monitoring and evaluation, and knowledge sharing to benefit researchers, practitioners, and policymakers in the region.
  • Review and discuss how country-owned planning processes and development partners involved (e.g. government, NGOs, donors, private sector, research community) can benefit from accessing regional networks for resources, such as specialized expertise, knowledge and information, tools, and lessons, and how to go about doing so.
