Get field and junior staff engaged • Use concrete opportunities for exchange as ‘hooks’4. Continue to take an organic approach / follow the energy
  19. 19. #5 Organic Learning Agenda in ActionBoP Service Models Building blocks of a Zambia – Agrodealers Ghana, India - RSP learning agenda that is Peru – Technical Assist. Providers already active within CARE Food Security on issues related to  Ethiopia - PSNP Plus  Bangladesh – Shouhardo market engagement.  Uganda - SCORE Women’s Empowerment Corporate Partnerships  Bangladesh - SDVC GAAP  Bangladesh - Walmart  Bolivia - Value Chain /  Ghana – Cadbury, Kraft, Cargill Chuquisaca  Sri Lanka – Ethical Tea  Mali, TZ, Malawi, India – Partnership Pathways Program
  20. 20. Hot OpportunitiesBuilding on the organic learning agenda, a few initiativesemerge that we can use as ‘hooks,’ to start building thenetwork:• Launching the CARE Monitoring and Evaluation Guide for VC Programs. Christian organizing a bi-weekly series of webinars to introduce this starting in February. Goal is to increase % of CARE staff applying good M&E practices in Market Engagement Programming.• Defining Common Indicators for Market Engagement across CARE. Gianluca willing to spearhead a task force on this topic. Goal is to build off of current thinking to define a core set of reasonable indicators that we can all track to compare performance and articulate national, regional and global impact.
  21. 21. Hot Opportunities• Pulling together the Next Market Engagement Newsletter. Due to be released toward the end of Feb, this would be a good opportunity for someone to take up, getting input from across CARE (rather than centrally generating what is covered and so much of the content).Along side this, we’ll need a process in place to define a CoP learning agenda and address some of the logistics, particularly translation. Are there other “Hot Opportunities,” people feel should be capitalized on right now?
