The course provided Civil Society Organisations (CSOs) with training in proven project management practices and tools to enhance project execution and manage stakeholders’ expectation, and was completed by ERIC Directors Ryan and Joanna, along with Coral Reef Ecologist Neil and Marine Ecologist Lanya.
The structure of the course included weekly webinars, group forums, online exams and a final group video project to share how the course impacted each CSO. We selected and applied our UNDP Small Grants Programme project “Supporting Natural Resource Management through Mapping” as a case study to compare existing project management tools with those introduced during the course.
This introspection provided the ERIC team with the opportunity to identify gaps in our practices and develop the necessary structures to go beyond existing frameworks usually provided by our donor organisations in order to effectively execute future projects. ERIC would like to take this opportunity to thank the IDB for selecting us as participants, and a special thank you to Coach and Trainer Felipe Chaparro for his professional facilitation and wealth of experience shared about Project Management.
