PMCG, as part of the USAID program Good Governance in Georgia (G3), is in the process of improving the capacity of GoARA senior management in M&E, strategic planning and public policy analysis. Two training sessions in public policy analysis were delivered in Anaklia, Georgia, on 22-24 November.
A three-day training module in public policy analysis, which aimed to provide participants with both a conceptual framework and practical experience in analyzing public policies, was attended by the senior management of GoARA and a G3 representitive. The course covered a variety of topics related to both the substance and methods of policy analysis. The goal of this course was to understand real-world policymaking and how to accommodate policy analysis.
The training session was interactive as the participants were actively involved in discussions and successfully implemented their assignments. A number of group works and simulations were carried out by participants thereby giving them a better understanding of public policy analysis related topics. The results of the pre- and post-test demonstrated that the knowledge and competence of the trainees had increased as a result of the course.
