Better Planning, Better Projects: Regional Workshop on Project Design Takes Place in Jamaica

A regional workshop on project design using the Logical Framework Approach has been held in Kingston, Jamaica, from 5 to 9 December 2016. The workshop supported the design of projects intended for proposal as part of the IAEA’s 2018-2019 technical cooperation (TC) programme cycle, and specifically aimed to help Caribbean countries, including new Member States that face common challenges such as Small Island Development States (SIDS), to develop high-quality and results-oriented technical cooperation projects.

The project design workshop was organized in collaboration with the Planning Institute of Jamaica. Six participants from Antigua and Barbuda, Barbados, the Bahamas, Dominica, Haiti, and Trinidad and Tobago attended the workshop, together with Jamaican counterparts and the IAEA team. The workshop combined both practical and theoretical training sessions. The concept of the Logical Framework Approach (LFA), used in TC project design, implementation, monitoring, and evaluation, was introduced. Participants were coached in how to apply the approach in designing their new projects by Ms Galya Dimitrova, TC Training Officer, Mr Saul Perez, Section Head of TC Latin America and the Caribbean Region, and Ms Scarlett Ihlau, Programme Management Officer for the attending Member States.
