ECO develops training and extension along digital and hybrid formats

Remote learning turns a priviledged way for capacity development

2021-03/ Following the COVID-19 pandemic digital formats have gained in acceptance and practicabilty, especially in the educational sector. In ODA programmes ECO Consult draws a particularly interesting momentum from (i) the use of digitally-assisted tools in the field and (ii) aligned technical exchange of experience about these tools by way of digital and hybrid HCD formats. Apart from the boosting evolution of digital appliances in various sectors, standard state-of-the-art expertise in the area of natural resources management and governance is of course also increasingly proliferated by digital formats. Seven trainings in the form of digital learning, hybrid learning and digital coaching of HCD processes have been delivered by ECO Consult's team of trainers, in 2020. This has allowed the team to adapt to the requirements and respond to technical as well as clients' demands.

ECO trainings are made to suit both, technical staff in partner intervention areas as well as a domestic expert audience. We use a variety of tools such as MS Teams, Mentimeter, Miro, Teamviewer, Trello etc.

  • Forestry, wood energy and biodiversity
  • Climate change adaptation
  • Value Links
  • Education and training (incl. TVET)
