The 3rd Lessons Learning Workshop was jointly organised by shiree scale-fund partners Save the Children (UK) and Uttaran. It brought together members from the scale-fund NGOs, representatives from local implementing partner NGOs and shiree staffs to share approaches, best practices and lessons learned, as well as discuss emerging issues and concerns facing the programmes in the south-western region of Bangladesh.
The event included a presentation by the DFID Nutrition Advisor, after which mainstreaming nutrition was agreed to be a key priority for project consideration. Best practices arising out of NGO experiences of targeting and selecting extreme poor households were also reviewed. Overall, the event drew attention to the complexity that projects face in working in an area so prone to disaster. Some strong advocacy messages emerged, including the need the need for safe drinking water and a coordinated approach between relief and development activities in the Aila-affected area of Koyra.
