In early March 2020, the Lesotho and Zambia country workshops were successfully held in Maseru and Lusaka.  However, due to the outbreak of the COVID-19 pandemic, the South African in-country workshop planned for April has been postponed until May.

The regional Training of Trainers Course, earlier scheduled for July 2020, is now scheduled for September 2020 at Rhodes University, South Africa.

The policy dialogue for the 2019 group will be moved forward and will be aligned with the policy dialogue of the 2020 group, thereby allowing cross interaction across six countries and their policy makers. Further details of this will be communicated in due course.
