The seventh lesson learning workshop was organized around the theme of “Sustainable Exit Strategies” and hosted by Concern Worldwide at Hotel Supreme in Sylhet on 4-6 September 2012. As the shiree Scale Fund Round 1 projects are currently moving into their second phase, issues surrounding sustainable graduation from extreme poverty have become increasingly important. This workshop gave an opportunity for the NGOs to discuss their experiences and lessons learnt in relation to ensuring that beneficiaries continue to progress even after support has been withdrawn. The wokshop also encouraged dialogue on how both the Private Sector and the Government of Bangladesh could be engaged more effectively through NGOs exit strategies. The event brought together all Scale Fund NGOs and CNRS from the Innovation Fund, as well as DFiD and shiree representatives.
