BRIDGE Rule #1: All BRIDGE activities must be approved by the BRIDGE Partners. Approval is obtained through the BRIDGE Office. Therefore BRIDGE implementers must advise the BRIDGE Office as soon as they can legitimately do so, of forthcoming BRIDGE activities.
The workshop is designed to improve skills, knowledge and confidence of participants through an active-learning methodology on general principles of sound financial planning – in a general sense, and also specifically in relation to electoral events and the electoral cycle.
Furthermore, the workshop will provide an opportunity for International IDEA to pilot and further develop the module ahead of its official launch on the Building Resources in Democracy, Governance and Elections (BRIDGE) website in late 2019.
The workshop will take place in conjunction with the Timor-Leste referendum celebrations in late August 2019 and will have a mix of 15-20 local and international participants from election management bodies (EMBs) and civil society organizations (CSOs) from Botswana, Indonesia, Malawi, Myanmar, the Philippines, Timor-Leste and Thailand.
The workshop is organized by International IDEA, the Secretariado Técnico de Administração Eleitoral (STAE), and the UNDP project Leveraging Electoral Assistance for Regionalized Nation-Building (LEARN).
