Our Training Unit Manager, Nyasha Musandu, is in Ethiopia this week facilitating the December Biannual Research Workshop for the African Economic Research Consortium (AERC).
The workshop, held in Addis Ababa in partnership with the United Nations Economic Commission for Africa (UNECA), brings together a large number of economists from Africa and across the word to build their capacity in research uptake and communication.
AERC outlines this workshop as providing its members with “a forum for participants meet within a worldwide network of professionals, discussing issues relevant to Africa’s economic development“. As well as an “opportunity for monitoring the progress and quality of the various research projects sponsored by AERC, thereby fulfilling one of its major mandates – to strengthen local capacity for conducting independent, rigorous inquiry into problems facing the management of economies in sub-Saharan Africa”.
Nyasha will be running sessions on presenting data visually, crafting effective messages, writing policy briefs and using social media.
