CID training: Adaptive Management

Start: End:
Location: Zoom

'Adaptive Management',  'Doing Development Differently', and 'Thinking and Working Politically' are increasingly important for our work in development. 

In these 'masterclasses' you will explore how these approaches connect and impact the way we work. What should we be doing differently; what does it mean for our partnerships; and how does it align with our 'Monitoring and Evaluation' requirements?

CID is hosting this training in partnership with MFAT, on Zoom. 

We are excited to have two global experts to host these sessions. These will be followed over the next few weeks by a keynote speech and a panel discussion amongst your peers.

Thursday 25 June midday-2pm (Zoom)
Presentations and interactive exercises covering the following:

  • What is the context for adaptive management? 
  • What is adaptive management?
