The planning process

CPR pays high attention to the preparation of work plans, budgets and activity schedules once contracts are issued and reviews the project progress against these targets annually during the lifetime of the project.

Full participation and the promotion of beneficiaries’ initiatives in the development process is a key ingredient of project planning. The use of stakeholder workshops to build consensus over project objectives and activities ensures active participation of communities in the development activities that will affect their livelihoods. Our partnership strategy is based on the need to build a knowledge base of those with whom we work, ensuring that the agenda and priorities of donors are fully understood by all those involved in the project.
