Target Audience

The target audience of the Training Kit are based in the context of Western Kenya Community Driven Development and Flood Mitigation Project (WKCDD &FMP) project implementation, the SCSGs are charged with ratifying the projects proposed by the community groups in their jurisdiction. In addition, the SCSGs are part of the monitoring teams that track the progress and outcomes of the projects; hence there is a need for them to understand the PICD process through which the projects are developed.
The lead Mats are the Technical Staff who are in direct contact with the Community. They are Trainers of trainers and in this case they would be charged to implement the PICD process directly with the community members.
As such the main objective of the training was to enhance the project support communication and participatory project planning skills of the management team so that they in turn can appreciate the uniqueness of the process and thereafter assist the officers working under them in facilitating community groups to identify, plan and manage their own development agenda.
Other objectives included; to build on previous PICD training and seal loopholes on identified gaps from previous trainings and enhance social accountability across the project
The training targeted 30 Lead Mobile Advisory Teams from ten sub counties and 10 selected members from the ten Sub County Steering Groups. Emphasis was made on the participatory process, gender mainstreaming and environmentally sustainable development as well as team building.
The Sub-County Steering Groups ( SCSG ) members are drawn from various line ministries (e.g. Ministry of Agriculture, livestock and Fisheries, Ministry of Health, Ministry of Environment, water and Natural resources, Ministry of Devolution and planning) and various state/county government departments/agencies e.g. the County commissioner offices, Dept. of special programmes, department of Youth development, Kenya Forest services, NEMA, social services department among others.
