facilitation and training


ECO offers hands-on trainings on different technical topics to experts from developing countries as well as to international and German development professionals. We accompany the development of trainer skills, and offer coaching for regional trainers. Our characteristic is the successful translation of specific technical expertise (e.g. forest legislation, climate proofing, household energy) into tangible competencies through interactive learning, be it step-wise strategic planning based on case work or stove building skills.

Our trainings are tailor-made and reflect the needs of the target group, from decision makers to practitioners. As we see training as part of a strategic development process, our concern is to initiate change processes through individual inspiration and in the same time meticulously plan the necessary institutional uptake.

Our services encompass
• the assessment of training needs (institutional objectives, individual starting points),
• the development of training concepts
• the development of tailor-made or more generic training material (for interactive learning as well as presentations),
• the organization and realization of training events (from one day workshops up to several weeks),
• guided tours and fieldtrips.

Since 2011, ECO has been supporting the ongoing development of the OECD/GIZ-training package “Integrating climate change adaptation into development planning”. We authored large parts of the training material, developed trainer handbooks and planning guidances. The experienced ECO trainer team consists of ECO Consult staff and associated trainers. While all are fully proficient in up-to-date adult education methods and the Climate Proofing approach, they cover a range of relevant sectors (water, rural development, disaster risk management, forestry, combating desertification, biodiversity conservation and coastal areas). Training languages are in German, English, French and Spanish.
