Development Account Project (ROA 105)
This manual describes a workshop method that enables participant experts to contextualize and adapt the material provided in the Guidance Notes - Developing National Sustainable Development Strategies in Post-conflict Countries' (GN).
The workshop provides an exploratory process to help development policy-makers and other stakeholders in conflict-affected countries address their unique contextual challenges. The intention of the workshop is to facilitate creative thinking and the application of the Guidance Notes material, and enable the participants to critically analyze the development contexts and brainstorm ideas that can inform a conflict-sensitive, cross-sectoral national sustainable development plan.
The workshop is to be held over two days and will convene 30 ~ 50 national and international experts, focusing on one specific country or on a group of countries. The location and the timing of the workshop should be adapted to suit the target group and to build on forthcoming development opportunities.
This training manual is complementary to the Guidance Notes (GN) and should be thoroughly reviewed by users of this workshop manual before training is developed and implemented. A successful workshop requires the contextualization of the GN material by the workshop facilitators and by the participants. To help support this process each workshop session references pertinent GN sections that can be applied by facilitators and participants.
