About the Webinar
For the last four years, CARE has undertaken political economy assessments in 12 countries located in different regions, such as Peru, Pakistan, Sri Lanka, Nepal, Egypt, Uganda, Malawi, DRC, Ethiopia, Zambia, India and Kenya. That experience has helped CARE to identify relevant issues to consider when doing PEA and to develop and fine-tune a Guide on Political Economy Analysis (PEA). In this webinar, Tom Aston, will share CARE´s experience supporting PEA assessments in these various countries and key lessons learned for making PEA more operationally relevant and thus achieve social and political change.
The speaker’s presentation is available here.
