Designing and Funding Sustainable Development Projects
Submitted by Tim Magee on February 9, 2010 - 12:15am.
Many NGOs and development practitioners will need to increase the impact of their projects if they are to work successfully with community members in adapting to climate change.
In an effort to make our impact training courses accessible to a larger international audience, we have launched an Online Learning program. Key courses on project impact, design and funding are now available inexpensively online.
Development staff from 31 countries are using our courses to develop new, community-centered, sustainable development projects.
Center for Sustainable Development Online Field Courses
From the Ground Up will give you an insight into contemporary methods of developing community-centered, impact-oriented projects. You will leave the course with practical field tools and develop a range of skills: needs assessments, project design, community workshops, and discovering evidence-based activities. The course is designed to be used as a vehicle for you to develop a real project, in real time, during the course.
OL 2.2. Project Architecture: Planning for Impact
This course will take the project concept developed in OL 2.1 and transform it with a powerful set of management tools into a project for presenting to donors. Logframes, detailed budgets, schedules and compelling fact sheets: these tools will communicate to donors, staff, and stakeholders exactly what you are going to accomplish, and lead the effective management of the project once funded.
