The Certificate Programme is aimed at strengthening professional capacity of experts from public and non-profit organizations from Central Asia and Afghanistan to design, implement and evaluate development projects which are sensitive to human rights and conflict issues. The participants went through 3 weeks of modules on project management, human rights and conflict sensitivity in August- September 2010.
Throughout October 2010, participants were designing project proposals distantly, under e-supervision of trainers. On November 2-5, Bishkek, participants presented their project proposals to a simulated Board of Donors comprised from representatives of the OSCE, UN, USAID, WB, DFID, GTZ and Soros Foundation.
In view of an outstanding number of applications received by the Academy for this professional training and based on internal evaluation including survey among participants, the OSCE Academy intends to continue this Programme.
In 2012 the International Certificate Training Programme in Conflict Sensitive Development was aimed at strengthening professional capacity of experts from public and non-profit organizations from Central Asia and Afghanistan to analyze economic development projects for countries and territories with ongoing or recent political, military or ethnic conflict. The curriculum covers analysis of economic risks associated with conflicts, principles of good governance in application to situations of conflict and practical conflict analysis and conflict management. The training uses recent cases, up-to-date theoretical material and highly interactive training methods.
