Answer: 

This is a great question and challenging to answer, partly because the desired benefits of establishing and operating learning networks often seem clear, but the effort and resources required to develop and sustain them is often considerable.  For this reason, the CTI-CFF has a long-term commitment to promoting learning and knowledge sharing across the region and has done so through a number of approaches. The networks are developed through a combination of face-to-face events such as workshops, regional exchanges, or trainings and use virtual collaborative tools to encourage ongoing engagement including on-line workspaces, conference calls and social media applications.
