Our WorkLearn more about the strategies and dynamics of the Regional Learning Program (PAR).
The Regional Learning Program is an initiative that seeks to improve the capacity of Latin American Sub national governments to reduce poverty and achieve the Millennium Development Goals (MDGs), through the exchange of knowledge about the role, importance and experience of sub national governments.
Our work is defined in five strategic areas:
- Support the Latin American Federation of Cities, Municipalities, and Associations of Local Governments (FLACMA-for its acronym in Spanish) in developing its ability to dialogue and represent Associations of Local Governments in events and meetings that involve the International Financial Institutions (IFIs) and international cooperation agencies.
- The Regional Dialogue on Politics focuses on supporting the development and improvement of policies and programs that support the achievement of the MDGs, through a more in-depth dialogue between governments, international cooperation agencies, IFIs, and other important regional stakeholders.
- The Learning Laboratories are oriented toward the implementation of laboratories, or pilot learning experiences, which produce both local and regional impact and contribute to the development of instruments and knowledge management in urban areas and Amazon border regions.
- The identification, analysis and dissemination of knowledge generated from the application of instruments that measure the impact of the MDGs (particularly Objective 1: Eradicate extreme poverty and hunger) with the participation of relevant actors.
- The design of a Learning Architecture that supports the collection of knowledge and experiences and facilitates the internal coordination of the program in order to promote greater impact.
