Learning for Change in Accountable Governance Programming

Published on 1 September 2016

This short paper provides an introduction to some of the different kinds of learning that are important in implementing and monitoring accountable governance programmes.

It discusses how Making All Voices Count makes sense of learning, outlines the aims and approaches of the programme’s learning strategy, and sketches some of the different types of learning that it is drawing on to move towards its goal of transformative change in governance. It also provides some tools for learning – asking the right questions, using theory of change as a learning tool, and frameworks for thinking about participation and power.
