Regional Livelihoods Workshop Announcement
Learn, Share, Network
A workshop for UN, international and local NGO staff working on economic and gender-based violence programs (enterprise development, vocational training, skills development, micro-finance, agriculture, cash and food for work programs, etc) with displaced and returning populations.
May 12 - 14, 2009
UN and NGO economic programming managers and practitioners from throughout the West Africa region working with displaced and returning populations. The workshop will be limited to 35 participants.
The Women's Refugee Commission will be conducting three livelihood workshops this year in West Africa, East Africa and Asia. The first one will be a three-day, highly participatory workshop designed to bring practitioners from throughout the region to learn new techniques, share experiences, and collect tools designed to improve practice on the ground. Two days of the workshop will focus on findings from the Women's Refugee Commission's three-year research project on livelihoods in refugee, IDP, and returnee settings and will include practice sessions on usage of the newly released Livelihoods Field Manual. The third day of the workshop will cover findings on the Commission's project on livelihoods as a tool of protection against gender-based violence and how GBV and livelihood programs should complement each other to better protect women.
Participants will be required to cover their own travel expenses. Meals and materials will be provided. Participants attending from local NGOs can apply for financial assistance for partial coverage of travel and hotel expenses.
