CSPR MicroZAMOD training workshop

The Civil Society for Poverty Reduction (CSPR) is excited to announce a CSPR MicroZAMOD training workshop in Lusaka from 25–28 March 2024. This intensive four-day event is part of the SOUTHMOD project and aims to bring together staff members of CSPR and members of the Social Protection Coalition.

The workshop empowers participants with the skills to effectively use MicroZAMOD—a powerful tool for analyzing the potential outcomes of various social protection policy changes. Attendees gain a comprehensive understanding of both the capabilities and limitations of MicroZAMOD, fostering a productive environment for knowledge exchange and learning.

  • Equip participants with the knowledge to utilize MicroZAMOD in exploring different social protection policy scenarios
  • Create a robust community of MicroZAMOD users in Zambia, ensuring widespread ownership and application of the model
  • Enable more informed decision-making in social protection policy through practical, hands-on training
  • Provide a platform for attendees to share experiences, strategies, and insights on using MicroZAMOD effectively

This workshop is unique in its approach to building a sustainable community of MicroZAMOD practitioners within Zambia. By focusing on the national team's leadership in the organization and delivery of the workshop, we aim to ensure that knowledge and expertise are rooted deeply within local institutions. Our vision extends beyond this event, aiming to embed MicroZAMOD knowledge within key stakeholder institutions and policy think tanks, thereby enriching the policy modelling landscape in Zambia.

  • Staff members of the Civil Society for Poverty Reduction (CSPR)
  • Members of the Social Protection Coalition
