TechChange is proud to be working with Global OPS, a platform for global peacebuilding, to provide real-time, customized assistance and professional development training for policy makers and peacebuilding practitioners working on the ground globally for peacebuilding, conflict prevention, and post-war recovery.
Using TechChange’s interactive e-learning platform, Global OPS will offer tailored support and training facilitation for UN experts and agencies, senior diplomats, government officials, peace practitioners, inter-governmental organisations staff, ministry staff and local authorities, and international organisations. These communities of practice will be forums to exchange lessons learned and timely knowledge on peacebuilding, prevention, crisis management, post-war recovery and stabilisation, and mediation and support for peace processes across the world.
To address key needs for peacebuilding, mediation and peace processes, conflict prevention, and post-war recovery, Global OPS modules have been developed to benefit peacebuilding practitioners based on extensive consultation with missions, agencies, organisations and governments in the field. Module facilitators are selected among a highly competitive pool of leading professionals with proven on-the-ground knowledge, expertise, and experience.
The first two modules of Global OPS begin in a pilot phase on November 20th 2013:
- Early Warning, Early Response and Contemporary Peace Operations (12 weeks)
- Putting Theory into Practice: The link from Project Cycle to Evaluation, Design and Implementation (5 weeks)
A further launch of 9 modules will take place in March 2014 in the first full semester of Global OPS.
