Concept Note

SARPN is organizing a 2-and-half days training seminar on poverty with the focus on analysis of poverty (nature/dimensions, depth and measurement) and impact of economic policies on growth, poverty and distribution in the SADC Region. The training will be held from 21-23 August 2006 in Pretoria, South Africa.

This training is targeted at senior level civil society members without specific training in this area. The course will enable participants to gain a deeper understanding in poverty and its dynamics. This will ultimately result in civil society interventions that have a greater impact on poverty reduction.

At the end of the training participants will achieve the following:
  • acknowledge and understanding of the underlying assumptions relating to methods and techniques of poverty measurement, its various dimensions and depth
  • exposure to techniques/methods required to develop poverty analysis and impact assessments which will ultimately assist them in reading trends and assist in targeting interventions
  • have shared and learnt how country experiences link to the global agenda on poverty
  • gained knowledge and understanding of how and when policy interventions are needed by different actors to enhance poverty reduction efforts in Southern Africa
  • understanding how to plan, implement and evaluate poverty reduction programs as CSOs working on these issues.
