Online training on 'Leave no one behind - Fundamentals of LNOB implementation in development cooperation projects'

3 May to 7 June​​ 2023 


Leave no one behind (LNOB) is a key underlying principle of the 2030 Agenda. However, its implementation presents major challenges. The online training will shed some light on how to apply LNOB in practice. Main focus of the training will be on peer-learning, concrete tools and good practices. Participants are invited to bring in their own challenges from their working context. Furthermore, experts will provide technical input and enter into dialogue with participants. A facilitation team will accompany and support participants throughout the o​nline training. The training will be conducted on behalf of Deutsche Gesellschaft für Internationale Zusammenarbeit (GIZ) and the Academy for International Cooperation of GIZ (AIZ).

For whom:

The course format benefits from participants with diverse institutional backgrounds working at different levels all over the world. For this reason, the training is explicitly developed for a diverse target group: development practitioners representing bilateral and multilateral development institutions as well as NGOs or national and local partner institutions.

What is it about:

International experts will provide inputs through weekly live online sessions, answer your questions and share relevant resources. The training consists of a series of modules tackling topics relevant in the context of development projects: the concept of LNOB, challenges and entry points, LNOB in the planning phase / during the implementation process / its inclusion within the monitoring & evaluation system, LNOB advocacy as well as LNOB action planning. Useful tools and materials will complement the training resources. Crucial part, however, is your involvement. The course will strongly focus on peer learning, sharing and exchanging of experiences from the working context and bringing in individual expertise and resources. A facilitation team will accompany you throughout the whole learning experience.

When will it take place:

The training offers 5 modules in the form of online sessions and self-learning activities. The total course duration is 6 weeks. All sessions will be held on Wednesdays from 10:00 to 12:00 CEST, except for the longer kick-off and final sessions on 03 May and 07 June, respectively, which will take place from 10:00 to 13:00 CEST. Additionally, there will be a tech-check on 26 April one week prior to the official start of the training. We recommend investing approximately 4 hours per week for learning (around 2 hours for participation in the live online sessions and 2 hours for self-learning and assignments).

What does it cost? 

The online training is offered for 1,220 Euro for GIZ staff and 1,430 Euro for external participants.
