Project Cycle Management (PCM) training was held on September 7, 2020. In accordance with the current epidemiological situation related to the COVID 19 pandemic, as well as the recommended measures for protection and prevention of the spread of the disease, the training was held online via the ZOOM application. The training was attended by 11 participants. PCM training aimed to increase the knowledge and skills of association activists in project cycle management so that they can independently develop and implement projects in accordance with the mission and goal of their association. The training program included the basics of project cycle management, details on the elements and phases of the project cycle, the methodology of the logical framework, SMART methodology of project development, as well as other tools used for effective project management.
