Result-Based Management (RBM) Training and System of Information on Strategies, Tasks and the Evaluation of Results (SISTER) trainings were held at IITE premises from 30 November to 2 December 2010. UNESCO HQ facilitators, Ms Othilie du Souich and Ms Anne Coupez, provided UNESCO Moscow office and IITE staff with exhaustive information on key principles of RBM approach and SISTER system usage.
RBM Training Programme was developed by the UNESCO Bureau of Strategic Planning in 2003 in order to instruct UNESCO staff on how to use RBM approach to make their work more efficient.
This three-day refresher training helped the participants to improve their knowledge on RBM and provided guidelines on its effective use when programming activities. As an anticipated result of this training the Moscow office and IITE staff members are expected to be more consistent when making their work plans and implementing projects, increasing emphasis on transparency of UNESCO.
The dates of the training coincided with the World AIDS Day dedicated to raising awareness of the AIDS pandemic caused by the spread of HIV infection. During the break between two training sessions on 1st December Moscow office colleagues showed a short film on HIV/AIDS. Moscow office and IITE members joint a world-wide movement against AIDS concern symbolically putting on red ribbons, global symbol for solidarity with HIV-positive people and those living with AIDS, during the training sessions.
