ICPALD Grants Management Training
ICPALD and FAO are jointly implementing the IGAD -FAO Partnership Programme on Drought Resilience (IGAD-FAO PP) in Somalia, Ethiopia and Kenya. The Project Document provides for IGAD grants to community organizations identified through a CMDRR process and whose proposals for funding have been approved by the Grant Award Committee. IGAD has developed a Grant Management Manual for use by its officers and partners to guide the grant management process. The IGAD – FAO PP is the first project where IGAD is practically implementing the Grant Manual and more so by giving grants to community based Organizations. This has necessitated capacity building of officers to better manage the grant cycle.The objective of this activity is to train officers in finance, procurement and programs from both ICPALD and the Secretariat on various aspects of grant management to equip them with hands- on skills to better manage the various aspects of the grant management processes. These include Development of call for proposals, submission, evaluation, award, implementation, monitoring and evaluation as well as reporting. The training is planned to run for four (4) days and facilitated by a consultant.
