Workshop and Study Tours on Procurement and Financial Management of World Bank Funded Projects


Workshop and Study Tours on Procurement and Financial Management of World Bank Funded Projects was a tailor-made program organized by Risalat for the members of the two ministries of Maldives. The program had a duration of 5 days and was held across two Turkish cities of Istanbul and Sakarya (Hendek). The delivery mode of the program was discussion-oriented emphasizing on knowledge and experience share between the representatives of public and private sector of the host country and the delegates.

Both the workshop and the study tours were tailor-made for the client organizations. There were 7 participants in total from the two ministries of Maldives: The Ministry of Fisheries, Marine Resources, and Agriculture and the Ministry of Environment (3 and 4 attendees respectively). The main goal for program delegates was to learn about the World Bank’s Procurement and Financial Management guidelines and understand their application in practice. Moreover, another equally important component was the practical comprehension of the host country’s project experience with the World Bank.

As a part of Risalat’s Commitment to Cultural Exchange between the guest and the host countries, the delegates were also invited to participate in sightseeing tours across Sakarya as well as food tasting and welcome dinner.  Participants also had a chance to get involved in a city planting ceremony organized as a courtesy by the mayor office to Risalat Delegates.
