The project “Sustainable Perspectives for Rural Areas in Ukraine and Russia” enables citizens in rural areas of selected regions in Russia and Ukraine to recognize opportunities and to develop sustainable perspectives for their rural communities. Local actors are encouraged to identify the connections between global ecological, economic, and technological developments as well as local possibilities for action to create future-compatible solutions for their own region.
To implement these processes successfully and efficiently, productive collaboration between all relevant actors is essential. Collaborative stakeholder dialogue processes are increasingly used as an important tool to ensure a high degree of ownership. However, the success of establishing a functioning cooperation platform depends on the design and structure of dialogue and consultation processes. This requires a methodological capacity, especially by the “owners of the process” to design and implement complex processes. This requires different interest groups to be properly included and integrated in such a cross-sectoral and interinstitutional context in providing sustainable perspectives for rural areas.
The objective of the trainings is to enhance the capacities of project participants through training regarding network management and stakeholder engagement skills. Particular attention needs to be paid to build capacities to implement change within the complex process and interlinkage of developing skills to use existing resources sustainably for the benefit of the community. A further aim is to empower the project's stakeholders to represent their interests (e.g. development perspectives, social security, healthy environment) in public and in front of their political decision makers, in order to gain their support. The enhanced competences will also positively contribute to designing and implementing a collaborative approach to developing and implementing sustainable perspectives for rural areas in Ukraine and Russia.
The following objectives will be met through the trainings:

Requirement of the Training Concept
The concept of the training sessions shall not be developed as a new product that still requires testing. The basic concept is in place and is a standard training already tested in various contexts. The training concept should be specifically tailored to the context of the EECA (Eastern European and Central Asia) region. The DRA team can brief the contractor on the current collaboration of the stakeholders.
We kindly ask you to offer a lump sum price (e. g. per participant), which covers all costs relevant for the assignment of the training sessions.
Organisation, translation (written or spoken) – if required –, organization of online tools will be provided for by the DRA.
All online events can be held using ZOOM or other platforms.
The two trainings (each 2 days) will be implemented in the following weeks:
07.09.2020 – 13.09.2020
14.09.2020 – 20.09.2020
