Facilitation and reporting

Workshops, events, conferences – these are one of the primary mechanisms used by ILRI staff and partners to plan and review research and to share, validate and communicate knowledge.

Using the power of social media (blogs, twitter, facebook, and the like), and giving attention to design and facilitation, we help improve the effectiveness of these events.
