Experiences in Co-Design Series: Stories of the field

In this new series of articles, members from the weekly Co-design group will be presenting their experiences in field. The aim of this series is not only to sharing members' experiences and reflections within the group, but with the broader community. The presentations focus on a variety of topics which include but not limited to:

  • Stories and examples from field;
  • Reflections and points of interest from experiences in the field;
  • Methods and tools used, and self-reflection of choices.

Our first article comes from James Mutuku, reporting on 3 case studies in service delivery in informal settlements in Namibia and South Africa. His presentation focuses on his experiences of managing conflict and misunderstandings between researchers and participants and how he worked with participants to resolve them.A copy of the presentation and a summary are provided below.PresentationSummary
