Where: Sheraton Ottawa Hotel, O'Connor Room, 150 Albert Street, Ottawa

Who: The roundtable will consist of a dialogue between academics, policy-makers and local development actors. The purpose of this event is to generate discussion to address the inclusion of local development projects on health and education in the design and implementation of public policies in Bolivia, Colombia and Peru. FOCAL has identified a set of organizations that are implementing local development projects in these three countries and have had an impact on their target populations. Three education and three health projects have been selected to be presented during this discussion. The aim is to identify areas of common work to maximize the potential positive effects of improved co-ordination in the design and implementation of new public policies and social programs.
