The International Water and Sanitation Centre-IRC, is one of the partners in the IWMI lead Wastewater, Agriculture, and Sanitation in Poverty Alleviation (WASPA) project which is using a Learning Alliance approach in the two project sites: Kurunegala, Sri Lanka and Rajshahi, Bangladesh.
IRC has been championing, supporting the use of and learning about Learning Alliances in a number of projects around the world.
Given the common interest in better understanding the use and value of such a knowledge sharing approach as Learning Alliances–IRC and KSinR have linked up and are trying to establish some joint activities around learning and communicating about Learning Alliances.
IRC now features the Knowledge Sharing in Research project on its website–under its WASPA project Learning Alliance theme–see link
According to Carmen Dasilva, an IRC researcher working on the WASPA project “the KSinR blog also provides some interesting lessons and questions relevant for our own work on multi-stakeholder learning.”
