Rhodes ISER, ELRC and the WRC to develop participatory course strengthening co-learning in water security networks
The Water Research Commission (WRC) is leading a component of the GEF6 Ecological Infrastructure for Water Security Project (EI4WS) focused on developing strategies to support social learning, knowledge mediation and management for deepening capacities in existing organisations and networks to address issues in the water and biodiversity sectors. As part of this, WRC has commissioned Rhodes University through the Institute of Social and Economic Research (ISER) in partnership with the Environmental Learning and Research Centre (ELRC) to develop a participatory course as one of the mediating tools for strengthening co-learning in EI4WS networks and community of practice. Working with the ELRC and other partners, the ISER will develop, pilot and provide continued support in order to scale the participatory course aimed at activating learning networks in the Berg-Breede and uMngeni River catchments. This project is grounded in the transformative social learning methodology to facilitate co-inquiry processes throughout the project.
