Summary

The overall goal of the project was to determine how participatory benchmarking workshops could be used to create local ownership of the MDGs by translating them into a local context. The SIPA team sees participatory workshops as the first step in the process of localizing MDGs. Facilitators listen and learn from the assembled community actors about their local development priorities and facilitate a dialogue among them to agree on realistic short and long-term targets (benchmarks), based on differing viewpoints, beliefs, knowledge and experience. The benchmarks can be used to monitor progress toward the local goals and create a sense of community ownership over their own future.
