Phase 1 Finished! Phase 2 Begun!

The CEDP team is pleased to report that funding for the next phase through UNDEF has now been confirmed, and AusAID support funding has also been approved in principle.

The team is now wrapping up the great achievements of the first year: including the development of the “Democracy in Our Place” module with trial workshops in Pacific (Vanuatu) and Asia (Bhutan) and has commenced work on the first outputs of Phase 2.

Phase 2: proposes to deliver the following outputs (dates are tentative):

  • Output 1 (Dec 2009-Jan 2010): Completion of a mapping and scoping of civic education resources in the region (a more in depth mapping than that conducted in 2008)         
  • Output 2 (start Dec 2009): Establishment of a Community of Practice (CoP) of civic education practitioners in the region, including setup of a ‘Knowledge Portal’ for the CoP, and other structures for communication and sharing (e.g. website). This output is being supported by International IDEA.        
  • Output 3 (start 2010): Development of a Training of Trainers for delivery of CEDP modules, and further work on the existing Democracy in Our Place module – to be used as a resource for the CoP
  • Output 4 (mid 2010): A combined CoP meeting and training workshop, incorporating the new ToT, the DiOP workshop, and the opportunity for CoP members to network and share – to be held in an Asia Pacific location TBC
  • Output 5 (mid 2010): Development of a module in Democratic Governance
  • Output 6 (end 2010): Mentor civic education practitioners to deliver the training curriculum at their national level
  • Output 7 (end 2010): Trial workshop of new curriculum delivered
