Facilitators for the ASSESS Communication Capacity Building Workshops (Webinars)

The Analytical Support Services and Evaluations for Sustainable Systems (ASSESS) project implements activities in support of USAID’s on-going transformation of its programs, structure, processes and workforce to operationalize the vision of ending the need for foreign assistance. In support of the new Policy Framework, ASSESS in consultation with USAID/WA REGO initiated a process to organize capacity building workshops in the form of Webinars with the objective to strengthen communication systems of its Implementing Partners (IPs), to facilitate the generation of quality and meaningful data and knowledge management for decision making. The proposed Webinars are intended to complement the existing trainings provided directly by USAID.

ASSESS has identified essential skills, concepts and practices critical to designing and maintaining effective systems and to further strengthen the capacities of IPs. The strengthened Communication Systems will facilitate project management and improve effectiveness of information management and dissemination of USAID programs and interventions in the region. 

The proposed Webinars are aimed at equipping IPs with relevant skills to effectively manage program results and communication systems.

Specific objectives include: 

  • To equip IPs with skills to develop and manage robust communication systems, to facilitate adaptive management 
  • To equip IPs with knowledge, skills and learning resources to enhance the management of program results and knowledge.
  • To strengthen the capacity of IPs to analyze project data, identify key outcomes and provide critical information to USAID/WA managers to enhance evidence-based decision making.
  • To equip IPs with complementary skills in communications to further enhance their ability to meet USAID’s reporting requirements and standards. 

The Webinars are targeted at Communication and Knowledge Management personnel, Program Managers and other individuals providing communication functions among Implementing Partner institutions across the region. Identification and enrollment of IPs in the proposed workshops will be done in consultation with USAID/WA REGO.
