The workshop slides are now available here.
Developing and implementing projects is a core activity for NGOs. When funding is available and the first results are encouraging, projects tend to grow, be it by scaling them up or by replication. Which strategies and models can be considered? And, to make a project fit for growing, which factors and challenges should to be considered since the beginning?
In this workshop, we will have the input of the Mava Foundation and myclimate, two organisations with broad experience in launching and supporting projects developed by partner organisations. We will focus on key aspects of growing a project and facing the different challenges that come with it: financial, manpower, know-how and – sometimes– finding suitable partners or beneficiaries. The first part will include a round of presentations and discussion with the guest speakers; in the second part, we will analyse concrete cases in a workgroup setting to highlight real challenges and best practices.
The session is thought for 10 to 20 participants, professionally involved in the area. We like to see things from different angles and based on actual experience. As such, we will look to include the input of different stakeholders (NGOs, foundations, experts, etc) and focus on an open and productive exchange.
Interested participants can submit cases, past or current, for discussion in the second part of the workshop.
