Inclusive project cycle management training

CHRISTOFFEL BLINDENMISSION (CBM)

"Inclusive Project Cycle Management (IPCM) training package has been developed for CBM staff and Partner Organisations worldwide

 

The Trainers’ Manual will guide CBM trainers. It contains the curriculum for the course and training resources for trainers to help them deliver the course. The training will be successful if the trainers make sufficient planning time to prepare in advance and to respond to partners training needs. Different contexts and different partners may require different emphasis on areas that may be a challenge. This training material is not suggested as a prescriptive manual but as a suggested framework that can be added to and deepened as required. This means adapting the course to the local context and training needs and competencies of partners. In particular, it would be good to supplement or replace case studies included in the course with local case studies (refer Handout 8) and to have participants draw on their own examples

 

In addition to the Trainers’ Manual, there are also Participant Folders. There is a small amount of information to be included in the folders at the beginning. Participants will receive extra course materials during the three days to complete their folders (Handouts)


The objective of the training is to promote inclusion in CBM’s work and the work of CBM’s partners. It focuses on two particular aspects of inclusion – how to ensure people with disabilities and both women and men participate in and benefit from development activities"

Impaired Millennium Development Goals? [editorial]

Dutch Coalition on Disability and Development (DCDD)
October 2005

Expand view

This editorial censures the absence of an explicit mention of disability in the Millennium Development Goals. Disabled people are often among the most excluded and marginalised, particularly in poor communities, but not reference to disability is made in any of the 48 indicators of the MDGs. Policy targets will achieve little if people are excluded from development processes, and disabled people are not being heard and allowed to make their contribution. The article calls for awareness raising, increased disability advocacy, recognition of disability as a 'cross-cutting' issue, crucially interlocked with poverty, and transparent programme-monitoring systems

Making cash count : lessons from cash transfer schemes in east and southern Africa for supporting the most vulnerable children and households

DEVEREUX, Stephen
et al
2005

Expand view

This is the report of a study comparing unconditional cash transfers to vulnerable groups in 15 countries in east and southern Africa, with in-depth analysis of four counties - Ethiopia, Lesotho, Mozambique and Zambia. Because cash transfers are new to this region, the aim is to draw lessons for policy from a comparative review. The report finds that knowledge gaps impede the development of meaningful policy. This work would be useful for anyone with an interest in vulnerable groups, development and the socio-economic factors

Projecting progress : reaching the SDGs by 2030 : interactive storyboard

OVERSEAS DEVELOPMENT INSTITUTE (ODI)

Expand view

This website shows the Overseas Development Institute’s (ODI) Sustainable Development Goals (SDG) interactive story board. It provides a scorecard, based upon taking data from one target per goal and projecting forward to 2030, with each goal graded from A-F according to how near they will be to completion in 2030. The results include no ‘A’s are awarded, and 5 goals receive an ‘F’ illustrating that, unless significant changes are made, none of the SDGs will be met. The remainder of the website also features videos, images and text outlining what must happen if the world is to reverse these projections and successfully implement all 17 SDGs
