|Selected examples of my experience:
Coordinated preparations, marketing and implementation of the first national forum on fair trade. The programme consisted of a trade fair, seminars, fashion shows, film shows, exhibits and a panel debate with well known debaters. Was responsible for the budget and for 6 members of a working group. Approximately 1000 individuals visited the Forum.
Started a project on conflict prevention I cooperation with the UN Association of Georgia. The project contributed to the development of the UN movement in the region through the formation of sister organisations in Armenia and Azerbaijan.
Lake Victoria Region
A new programme for civil society project support for the Lake Victoria region was planned. Based on a feasibility study of the civil societies around the lake, including field interviews of local actors, the requirements for the programme were formulated. In depth organisational analyses of selected NGOs were made for the set up of a Fund. The study resulted in a proposal to Sida for a three-year programme.
Together with the unit for environmental education a national IEC resource centre was built, radio and TV programmes produced and the first national environmental newsletter started. Worked in co-operation with the Government Department for Education for incorporation of environmental issues in the school curricula.
