4 | Lesson 1: Targeting and Matching

Different target groups need different focus. The closer to operations, the bigger the challenge to match target groups.

Consequences:

  • Differentiate target groups between

    • political level,

    • planners,

    • implementers.

       Who needs what?

  • For implementers, pre-deployment or in-mission trainings are best-fit, as they can cover conflict and context specific knowledge and skills.

     Challengesdue to different deployment modes, dates and cycles.

4 | Lesson 2: Knowledge and Skills

Different training formats focus on different types of knowledge and skills. There is no “one size fits all”.

General Knowledge

  • Concepts (Comprehensive Approach, Human Security etc.)

  • CA philosophy in different International Organizations and Nations

  • Analysis and planning instruments

  • Structures, mandates and organizational cultures

    Conflict-specific Knowledge

    Skills

  • Intercultural behavior

  • Conflict and actor analysis

  • Defining goals and planning

  • Networking and interaction

4 | Lesson 3: Priorities and Mainstreaming

Civilians’ training time is a scarce resource. To maximize numbers of participants, minimize time required. Focus on mainstreaming.

Consequences:

  • Identify training priorities for target groups with respect to

    • relevant skills,

    • relevant conflict context,

    • training time required,

    • political importance.

  • Focus on short training courses or modules to minimize time required.

  • Focus on mainstreaming to reach maximum numbers of participants.
