This is the second event in a series of three webinars sharing lessons emerging from research led by LEAP on the PERL programme in Nigeria.

This event, co-convened with the Thinking and Working Politically (TWP) Community of Practice, explores how donor-supported efforts to promote governance reform can work in ways that are politically smart and anchored in learning and adaptation.

Looking at the PERL experience, the panel will discuss what it takes to foster experimentation, learning, and adaptation in practice. Experts as well as programme designers, managers and implementers will highlight lessons emerging from efforts to operationalise ‘thinking and working politically’ in Nigeria. They will also tease out implications for the design and implementation of governance programming and share transferable practices.

This event will take place on Zoom. Please join us on Zoom by following the instructions that you will receive in your confirmation email. A "Join this webinar" button will appear on this page shortly before the webinar, for easier access.

Please consider joining the other webinars on our series, where we will share lessons on how governance reform can be achieved (05 Oct) and on whether better governance leads to improved health and education (19 Oct).
