LINKING KNOWLEDGE TO CHANGE
Live & Learn works across 9 countries in the Asia‐Pacific region and has more than 20 years’ experience in community development in the Asia‐Pacific. This experience and knowledge about the many challenges facing small islands countries will contribute towards producing high quality outputs. Countries of experience include: The Maldives, Fiji Islands, Solomon Islands, Vanuatu, Cook Islands, Papua New Guinea, and Cambodia.
Live & Learn in the Maldives is a locally registered organization and has been working in the Maldives since 2005. Live & Learn has implemented a series of small to large-scale projects in the Maldives on environmental management and resilience building.
The Rapid Assessment of Perceptions and Capacity (RAP) was conducted by Live and Learn as the first of the six work packages for the Public Awareness and Community Capacity Building (PACCB) Program. The RAP presents a preliminary synopsis of the current SWM situation and PACCB stakeholder’s information and prevailing perceptions and capacity of the communities in Zone 3 (Islands in Kaafu, Alif Alif, Alif Dhaalu and Vaavu Atoll).
Based on the finding of the RAP, a detailed communications strategy and campaign branding guide will be developed to roll out the PACCB Program. The communications strategy will outline the goals and methods of the public awareness and behavior change outreach activities, including the target groups, messaging and materials to be developed.
