Learning Alliances: Key Documents

SWITCH - Learning Alliances

Here you can find and use a series of Briefing Notes on Learning Alliances that have been prepared for the SWITCH project. They focus on essential areas in developing research partnerships in Integrated Urban Water Management (IUWM). New notes will be added regularly and together they provide a set of 'how to' guidelines. Other longer working papers and reports provide further information on how to develop a Learning Alliance and on experiences within the SWITCH project.

Learning Alliance Briefing Notes: These briefing notes provide essential information, with links to further resources, on the building and facilitation of learning alliances in urban water management.
