Microdata Management Toolkit Training of Trainers (December 2013)

Country / Regional Activity: Global
Date of Event: 09/12/2013

Three Regional, back-to-back Train the Trainers workshops were organized. Two were undertaken in Tunis, Tunisia and the other trained Latin American trainers in San José, Costa Rica. The training took place over the period of December 9 - 17, 2013.The three workshops corresponded to key focal regions: Anglophone Africa (and Eastern Europe); Francophone Africa and Latin America. These three workshops brought a total of twenty-nine trainers together from nineteen different countries: Ethiopia, South Africa, Zambia, Kenya, Rwanda, Mozambique, Moldova, Burkina Faso, Cameroon, Côte d’Ivoire, Niger, Senegal, Tunisia, France, Costa Rica, Dominican Republic, Honduras, Mexico and Uruguay. This Train the Trainers workshop on the IHSN Toolkit enhanced the capacity of the future trainers on the use of the Nesstar Publisher 4.0.9 and provided them with the technical and management skills needed to facilitate workshops. The participants also worked together and exchanged views and expertise in order to build an advanced community of practice and test standardized training materials. The Secretariat received very valuable feedback from the participants regarding the modules and training materials that were presented to them. In the coming months, these useful comments and inputs will be incorporated in the final version of the modules and training materials.

Special thanks to our regional collaborating partners: African Development Bank in Tunis and Data First at the University of Cape Town.
