This Project Management for Donor Funded Projects course offered by Garvey Africa Institute affirms that the application of appropriate project management techniques is extremely crucial for the achievement of desired goals and objectives for donor funded projects. Success or failure of a project is fundamentally in the hands of key players in the management of projects. Without effective project management, a project may become unmanageable and diverge from the set scope of work, miss milestones, and ultimately fail to provide the desired target outcomes.
Donor funded projects have stringent guidelines that the beneficiaries of the funds must adhere to in order to avoid conflicting with the donors. This Project Management for Donor Funded Projects course introduces participants to the trends and requirements for project management as it relates to donor funded projects. It emphasises the key tools and techniques necessary to effectively manage donor funded projects, large and small. This course on Project Management for Donor Funded Projects emphasises analysis of different phases of the project/programme cycle. It looks closely at preparing, implementing, monitoring and evaluating projects and programmes as it examines the role of the “project”relative to other aid delivery methods used by donors/development, such as budget support.
