Participatory Project Planning

Are you working for a developmental organisation and plan for example, a human rights project in Burundi, a basic education project in Laos, or a food security project in Guatemala? Do you wish to conceptualise your project in a developmentally sensible and successful way? Do you plan to react to changes quickly and flexibly and to check on a regular basis whether your project is on the right track for success or not? Are you in need of competences in order to respond successfully to current quality standards?

Projektplanung PME

The process from the first project idea to the concrete planning process entails a number of challenges for European NGOs and their partner organisations in the global south.

Important questions during the project planning phase are:

  • How do I design a project needs-oriented and participatory?
  • Which goals are realistic?

The training on participatory project planning assists you in answering these questions. You will learn to use the components of project cycle management (PCM) and how the different phases of planning, implementing, results-monitoring and evaluating build upon each other.

“finep supported us in the process of project development, carried out a participative planning workshop and assisted us in designing the application. The resulting project was well thought through and was implemented successfully.” (Veronika Schwanz, Kindernothilfe, Germany)

This includes

  • what a sensible project logic looks like,
  • how to design a meaningful logical framework, and
  • learning about which components belong to a project proposal in development cooperation or humanitarian aid and how they interconnect.

After the training you will be able to,

  • Assess project proposals and develop them yourself;
  • Use project planning methods competently in your own work
  • Consult and support your partner organisations in project planning
