Through a combination of traditional lectures, knowledge-sharing sessions and open discussions, both lecturers and participants assess and develop effective current policy directions and elaborate additional solutions.

Key features:
This multidisciplinary training course programme synthesises politics, academia and practitioners and focusses on capacity building by providing participants with a broad knowledge on all types of inequalities and its drivers. Through a multi-level approach, inequality is analysed in its multiple dimensions and contibutes to a deeper understanding of policy challenges and how to overcome them. Furthermore, the course provides a forum for discussing country-specific contexts and to practically gain and sharpen skills to improve equality-promoting policies.

Duration:
Either 5 days intensive face-to-face exchange course or 8-10 weeks online course.

Particulary relevant for:
Policy makers working on development cooperation, governmental institutions, or related work areas aiming to learn more about the reduction of inequalities from theory to practice.

Poverty Targeting Primer

Implementation

Goal:
This primer channels and enhances the application of targeting methods to address poverty and leave no one behind.

Key features:

  • key questions for the assessment of poverty targeting systems
  • review of the most common poverty targeting methodologies
  • concrete tools to facilitate decision making in poverty targeting

Particulary relevant for:
Development planners and practitioners interested in practice-oriented guidance regarding existing methods to target left behind groups

Read more

Goal:
Within the existing multitude of targeting methods to identify and reach people living in poverty, this practically oriented Poverty Targeting Primer channels and enhances their application to ultimately leave no one behind. Not only does this tool raise awareness about the importance of targeting, but, more crucially, offers practical assistance for programmes and initiatives that want to deploy targeting within their projects.

Key features:
Starting with key quesitons for the assessment of poverty targeting systems, this tool generates a review of the most common poverty targeting methodologies. The variety of existing methodologies is divided into six categories, all of which are explained, discussed, peppered with practical examples and compared with a view to their advantages and disadvantages. The tool moreover considers various kinds of expectable costs involved in poverty targeting. Finally, concrete tools to facilitate decision making in poverty targeting complete this tool's practicability.

Particulary relevant for:
Development planners and practitioners interested in practice-oriented guidance regarding existing methods to target left behind groups

Poverty Analysis Tool

Planning Strategy

Goal:
This tool provides a framework for analysing national poverty situations to ensure a portfolio which delivers measurable impact on poverty across all sectors.

Key features:

  • guidance on how to obtain key data on the current poverty situation and to detect the most significant drivers of poverty of a selected country
  • instructions for analysing the current portfolio and options for the future
  • concepts for interactive workshops to validate the findings and prioritise the most significant drivers of poverty

Duration:
Ca. 4 weeks

Particulary relevant for:
Project managers, portfolio managers, policy makers, strategy makers and planners

Read more

Goal:
The Poverty Analysis Tool (PAT) provides a framework for analysing the poverty situation in any (GIZ) partner country. It helps to ensure a balanced portfolio which delivers measurable impact on poverty across all sectors. This tool functions to quickly identify the major issues and opportunities and to bring topline information into decision making. Furthermore, the PAT can be used as a framework for a more in-depth and qualitative poverty analysis.

Key features:
Divided into three sections and built in feedback loops, the PAT delivers guidance on how to obtain and summarize key data on the current poverty situation, the most significant drivers of poverty and their consequences for people’s lives as well as an analysis of the current portfolio and options for the future. Moreover, it incorporates instructions for a workshop to validate the findings and apply country-team knowledge and expertise to prioritise the most significant drivers of poverty, analyse the extent to which these are currently addressed and opportunities to have more impact.

Duration:
Ca. 4 weeks

Particulary relevant for:
Project managers, portfolio managers, policy makers, strategy makers and planners

Inequality Diagnostics

Planning Strategy

Goal:
The inequality diagnostics enables a deeper understanding of inequality's country-specific causes and consequences, past efforts to address it, and potential solutions.

Key features:

  • practical and context-adaptable instructions for the analysis of inequality trends, causes and consequences
  • examination of the C28extent to which inequality reduction features are dealt with in the national political and societal discourse
  • policies which directly address the main types and root causes of inequality
  • opportunities for inequality reduction through German Development Cooperation

Duration:
Ca. 10 weeks (excluding contract preparation)

Particulary relevant for:
Policy makers and project planners who are interested in a structured diagnostic for the assessment of national inequality

Read more

Goal:
The inequality diagnostics pave the way for a deeper understanding of inequality's country-specific causes and consequences, past efforts to address it, and the range and feasibility of potential solutions. Therefore, this tool provides the structure for a diagnostic assessment of national inequality in partner countries of the German Development Cooperation.

Key features:
Split into four parts, the guidelines for executing country-specific inequality diagnostics offer practical and context-adaptable instructions. In part one the focus lies on the Analysis of inequality trends, causes and consequences, leading to the second part of exmining the extent to which inequality reduction Features are dealt with in the national policial and societal discourse. Part three concerns policies which directly address the main types, root causes and ultimate consequences of inequality including a reflection on past experiences regarding (un)successful policies. Finally, part four of the laid out inequality diagnostic explores the opportunities for inequality reduction through German Development Cooperation.

Duration:
Ca. 10 weeks (excluding contract preparation)

Particulary relevant for:
Policy makers and project planners who are interested in a structured diagnostic for the assessment of national inequality in countries worldwide
