Program Information

In this blended learning, 4 month training program you will participate in:

PHASE I: Four weeks. September 1 – 25, 2015.

  1. 3 weeks pre-workshop. Guided Field Data Collection: Community Needs Assessments. Conduct a needs assessment with a target population in preparation for use in the workshop—guided through distance learning by CSDi staff. We will provide all of the tools and information you need to conduct the needs assessments.
  2. 5 days. A Face-to-Face Workshop. Full Project Design and Development. Working with the CSDi workshop leader, you will use your needs assessment to begin the development of a complete, fundable, launchable project.
  3. 2 optional field days. Don't have community access? Participate in two additional, optional field days the Saturday and Sunday prior to the workshop conducting a participatory needs assessment with our local partner near the workshop venue.


PHASE II: 12 weeks. September 28 - December 18, 2015.

  1. Post-workshop: Form a project team, design capacity-building workshops and launch your project.


The course will equip you with the tools and techniques you need to improve current project effectiveness, to introduce community-based adaptation into organizational programming, and to generate new projects. This practical training course is appropriate for administrators, policymakers, all levels of practitioners—as well as for students of development.


We look forward to working with you in our training programs.
