Eradicating poverty: using poverty dynamics to enhance development efforts
Wed, 3 May 2017, 08:00 – Thu, 4 May 2017, 16:30 EAT
The Chronic Poverty Advisory Network, in partnership with the Kenya Institute for Public Policy Research and Analysis (KIPPRA), is pleased to announce the event ‘Eradicating poverty: using poverty dynamics to enhance development efforts’ that will take place in Nairobi, Kenya, on the 3 and 4 May 2017.
In the workshop speakers and participants will present and discuss the main findings and policy implications of CPAN’s work on anti-discrimination and disability, social protection, growth and poverty dynamics, all intended as ways to build sustaining escapes from poverty. These will be also debated and refined for the national contexts by national policy makers, policy advisors, activists and journalists who are all interested in poverty eradication from different angles.
Finally, the event aims to involve national and regional policy makers, opinion leaders, practitioners and researchers to present and discuss the concept of Chronic Poverty Coalitions (CPC) as a means to advocate for and carry forward the poverty eradication policy agenda at the country level.
Sessions’ Format, Speakers and Participants
The workshop develops over two days and will revolve around panels and a series of working groups. Please look at the draft concept note for more information.
Speakers will be a combination of key policy leaders, experts, and senior officials from developed and developing countries. They are invited from all regions of the world for their relevance. The moderators are selected from the pools of speakers, participants, and key officials.
The workshop involves participants working on social protection, disability, discrimination, and growth from countries with significant levels of extreme poverty, including: national officials and opinion leaders, international and national practitioners working in international organisations, international and national non-governmental organisations, private sector operatives, representatives of the donors’ community, staff of civil society organisations and researchers.
Logistics, Costs and contact
The conference is free but seats are limited. Participants are required to cover for their own travel and logistic expenses. CPAN can offer support only to a very limited number of participants. Participants who can funds their own costs will have more chances to be accepted to the event.
The event will be held at the Heron Portico Hotel in Nairobi, Kenya.

 The development of Chronic Poverty Coalitions is CPAN’s emerging new approach to the issue of policy engagement. Its main objective is to enable an environment at the national level where policy makers, private sector actors, CSOs and staff of national and international organisations can find the right support and research-evidence to develop effective advocacy strategies on the eradication of extreme poverty and tackling chronic poverty.
