Sponsored by the Ikhala Trust, South Africa.


There has been expressed interest in how ABCD can be applied within specific contexts and we have decided to run a series of short online seminars to build on the basic course and address specific topics. Thanks to the generosity of Ikhala Trust’s funders, we are able to offer the seminars free of charge:

Seminar # 1 – ABCD and Community led Value Chain

The workshop will start by comparing the linear and circular economy and brainstorming ways of boosting the local economy building on the asset base. Drawing on the work of the Coady Institute, we will apply a method of community led value chain, using the Leaky Bucket as a tool. We will conclude the seminar with a case study. The seminar is particularly relevant for organisations supporting livelihood programmes or working in the field of local economic development.

Date: 31 May 2022 Time: 9h00 12h30

Please note: These are South African times – please check for the times in your country.

If you are interested in attending one or more seminars please complete the attached application form.

Please note: only learning partners who have completed the basic ABCD course virtually or face to face will be able to attend as the seminars build on the content covered in the basic course.

Yours in community-led development
