Along rural lanes of undulating sand was our venue for the second of several learning exchange events. We were in Batticaloa District in eastern Sri Lanka.
The EU programme brings together five partners, each with different areas of expertise, and these events are to share learning. The theme for this event was conflict sensitivity and transformation and it was led by Peace & Community Action. In February, South Asia Partnership hosted an exchange on gender equality.
Learning exchanges, learning tours in the field, district level engagement events, a national conference, and on going capacity building with associate partners and community based organisations, are the main activities of the programme.
