Problem identification phase â 2 day workshop:

  • Conduct the capacity self assessment;
  • Construct a problem tree â identify a major problem (e.g. related to performance) and weakness in the capacity (underlying causes), prioritize the causes and define risks (factors that cannot be changed within a given timeframe & resources);
  • Discuss feasibility of different approaches & interventions that can address the priority needs and improve the overall performance (defined by corresponding indicators and targets at the best);
  • Define the roles and commitment of the HRH Coalition members in the finalization of the proposal to OSI/OSGF.

Proposal design phase:

  • Elaborate core elements of the proposal in accordance with the OSGF grant application requirements;
  • Share the draft with HRH coalition and incorporate their feedback;
