Tufts developed a draft project learning agenda strategy following a consultative process with Save the Children International (SCI), implementing partners, and our stakeholders to ensure the strategy was inclusive, integrative and responsive to the needs and challenges of the country, the project, and the local research community. A workshop was organized to validate the strategy on June 27, 2017, at the ILRI campus in Addis Ababa, Ethiopia. The workshop brought together members of the research and learning community including project partners, research institutions, government ministries, private organization, non- government organizations and development partners to discuss and endorse the strategy.
Following the validation, a webinar on the topic “Evidence Use for Programs and Policy” was presented and facilitated by Tufts University faculty from the Tufts Growth through Nutrition team. This learning event helped to create a common understanding around current and potential approaches to the generation and use of evidence for nutrition programs and policy.
