Sustainability in Development Projects: Stakeholders´ Engagement

This is a one-week online training to acquire tools for stakeholder engagement in a "self-paced" modality, which means that participants regulate the pace of their learning and the management of their study time.

Experience has shown that planning for citizen participation contributes to reducing and containing social conflicts, reducing risks and adding opportunities. The planning process contains 5 levels of interaction. Throughout this course, we present examples and lessons learned on how, when and where to use them, presenting a practical roadmap to optimize the design and execution of projects, operations, policies, etc.
At the end of the course, anyone interested in development project management will be able to:

  • Identify the added value of planning and implementing smart citizen participation actions.
  • Recognize what each level consists of and when each one should be used.
  • Identify mechanisms or strategies to execute each of the levels.
  • Contrast the adequate use with the inadequate use of each of the levels.

Those interested in taking the training should log into Wiconnect and follow the steps to complete the registration.
