On March 16-17, within the framework of the Winnet Armenia Coalition Network Development Program, 16 representatives from 11 coalition member organizations were trained in the «Development of Public Policy for CSOs», conducted by Public Administration Expert Hovhannes Avetisyan.
The course was aimed at strengthening the capacities of member companies of the Coalition Network in Winnet Armenia to increase the network’s impact on public policy-making processes. The training provided new knowledge and skills that network members will use to increase participation in local and national policies, formulate common objectives and priorities and apply to the government with new initiatives on constructive and strategic policies.
By the example of a variety of practical experiences from the trainer, the participants understood how to achieve the desired change and the solution of public policy issues through argumentation. Then, tools were presented which could be more effective in elaborating public policy and which would enable them to record success.
The Winnet Armenia Coalition Network Development Program is implemented by the Winnet Armenia coalition within the framework of the EU-funded «Constructive Dialogue Commitment» program implemented through a consortium led by the Armenian Association of Lawyers.
