The organizational and institutional embedding of new learning is one of the biggest challenges for development. This book in the Development Matters series takes a learning approach to development, focusing the learning that takes place through development action - be it intentional and structured, or the outcome of different forms of engagement. Learning for Development also demonstrates how important a critical awareness of the social dynamics of learning is for individuals and their organizations, and for building coherent policy and action. Through a number of case-studies and a wealth of interdisciplinary research, Learning for Development proposes a more flexible model of development action which aims to ensure that projects address the specific needs of, improves dialogue between, local groups and individuals.
