THE CSSP Extension Phase LEARNING SEMINARS SERIES 2017

CSSP is pleased to share important documents from the series of national Learning Seminars that took place between May and July 2017 in different parts of the country. The seminars focussed on five themes, each of which emerged through the work done by a cohort of civil society actors in collaboration with the Government during five years of CSSP1.

For each seminar over 80 representatives from government, civil society, academia and development partners participated. Most important of all, each seminar also included participation from members of the communities that were the focus of the learning. This meant that alongside Federal and regional government representatives sat younger and older women and men from grassroots communities, women affected by violence, ex-offenders, ex-addicts, people from severely disadvantaged groups, people affected by mental ill-health and community activists.

The debates were lively and challenging, touching on issues that have been overlooked or which relate to sensitive aspects of Ethiopian society. But the unique combination of participants, careful moderation from key stakeholders, and generous sharing of knowledge and ideas have contributed to key recommendations for action and follow-up in the coming months.
