CEF at the Learn4dev Annual Meeting

Jun 26, 2013


With the aim to reflect back on the ten-year history of the learn4dev network and set frames for its future, members and representatives from interested organizations came together in Bonn, Germany for the network’s 2013 Annual Meeting.

The meeting focused on new learning trends and processes. From the presentation of the newly compiled history of the network, the participants learned about the evolution from Train4Dev (the former name of the network) to learn4dev. Learning expert Jenny Pearson picked up on this in her presentation, asking ”You have changed the name, have you yet changed the practice?”

The meeting provoked many productive discussions and inspiring working groups. Special attention was devoted to drafting recommendations for the network’s future. The meeting was co-hosted by the GIZ (Deutsche Gesellschaft für Internationale Zusammenarbeit) and the European Commission.

The 2014 Annual Meeting will be co-hosted by the CEF and the Swiss Development Cooperation (SDC). It will take place in Ljubljana, Slovenia.

Notes for editors:

learn4dev is a joint donors’ competence development network and an open forum for donor agencies and multilateral organizations. Its objective is to promote improved aid effectiveness for poverty reduction by enhancing donor cooperation in the field of competence development and training.

The CEF became a member of the learn4dev network in 2008 when it joined the Public Financial Management (PFM) expert group. Since then, the CEF has been active also in the Knowledge Management, and Capacity Development expert groups. Currently the CEF is also a member of the network’s core group, together with the EC, the GIZ and the SDC, and co-chairs the PFM expert group together with the UK Department for International Development and the Canadian International Development Agency.
