What makes this tutorial different

The Exit Strategy professional development workshop exists to foster the growth of intervention sustainability. If you attend the program, you’ll have a remarkable opportunity to learn about disengagement and its broader implications; grow into programming thought leaders; and build a strong, diverse community of friends for life who share your commitment to sustainable change.

This workshop addresses questions around the importance of Exit Strategies - sustainability is a key theme evoked throughout. Participants are encouraged to think of an Exit Strategy as a Sustainability Plan, which has inherent benefits irrespective of timing and context.

Exit Strategies are part of good program planning and thus their basic premise (promoting sustainable outcomes) and components should not be foreign. With a bit of practice, over time they can be mainstreamed into all aspects of programming from assessment, planning and design to implementation, monitoring and evaluation. This workshop will encourage and promote that process among practitioners, as well as among external stakeholders and partners.
