The Learning Hub (LH) is conceptualized as a public good to support refugee response level learning and to help ensure that learning feeds into organizational decisions. The Learning Hub curates existing learning resources and makes them more accessible to the refugee response community to encourage uptake. In addition, the LH facilitates and documents new learning when gaps or needs are identified.
Learning Hub Objectives
- Learn from current and past approaches to encourage uptake of good practices and pivot away from less successful approaches
- Provide spaces and opportunities for refugee response actors to come together (on-line and off-line) to exchange knowledge and learning on refugee response.
- Foster links and exchange between traditional (Government, INGO, UN, NGO) and non-traditional response actors (private sector, innovators, CBOs, RLOs, academics).
- Feed learning captured from the Uganda refugee response into global refugee, protracted crisis, nexus and resilience policy debates.
The Learning Agenda
The agenda is a set of core themes that guide the thematic focus of the Learning Hub. The themes should be;
- Directly relevant and have practical use to Uganda refugee crisis actors.
- Broad enough to be relevant to global debates. Feed into key decisions at programmatic or policy level.
- Respond to a learning gap and avoiding duplication.
- Not sector specific, but cut across the different sectors of the refugee response.
- Connect to fields or partners outside a pure humanitarian scope.
