More information

This five-week on-line course offers an overview of the principles and content that should be present for a consultation process to be considered “meaningful”. Since it is not feasible to discuss every possible circumstance in detail, the course reflects on principles and gives overall guidance, rather than a standard blueprint or “one size fits all” approach. Broadly, the course addresses three aspects of how consultation is approached in IDB policies and how good practice has evolved: 

(i) Explicit mandatory and binding requirements related to consultation in IDB policies and guidelines; 

(ii) Implicit requirements of the consultation process not stated explicitly in the policies, but that are necessary conditions and inputs to achieve the more explicit requirements; and 

(iii) International good practice related to consultation as developed in recent years, both by IDB and other development agencies, academia, civil society and others. 

The course is divided into five modules: 

(1) Foundations of MSE; 

(2) 10 Elements of MSE; 

(3) Diving Deeper into Elements of MSE, part 1; 

(4) Diving Deeper into Elements of MSE, part 2, and 

(5) Making Recommendations to Improve the Engagement Process and Course Conclusion. 

Please note that this course will have one synchronous session (live session to attend a specific day and time through videoconference) to be held during module 2, on Wednesday at 12:00PM Washington time. This session is entirely optional, therefore your participation will not affect the final grade of the course. We recommend this session for informative purposes only.
