On 18th – 19th April 2012, SSA- UHSNET successfully conducted a two day training of members in documentation and communication. The overall aim of the training was to equip member participants with skills in documentation and communication to ensure there is effective case study dissemination in the human settlements sector.
Among other benefits, the training was able to:
- Equip individuals from member organizations with adequate knowledge and skills to understand and apply effective documentation and communication techniques
- Help participants to understand how to engage with media, and be creative in best practice reporting
- Initiate a follow up process to support members in the documentation practices.
