The launch of KCPIN Knowledge Cafe Oct 2014

On 29 Oct 2014, we re-launched Poverty Watch by the name of KCPIN to move the project forward in a new direction. The network was opened up to the Social Council's entire membership. The meeting took the format of a knowledge cafe. At the meeting we presented three possible research areas that required further attention. Following the meeting we  followed up with a questionnaire to help inform our views.
