Herding cats: Facilitation in social learning processes

Export citation

The chapter unpacks good process facilitation based on long-term experience over three decades in Eastern and Southern Africa, Asia and the Caribbean. It elaborates how such facilitation competences can be developed within institutions and communities. Facilitation for change is the backbone of operationalising participation, engagement of people and collaboration. A successful intervention requires far more programme investment in developing good facilitation and process management capacity than typically planned.
