For more details about this training, kindly refer to the attached document.


Due to the nature of the training which is designed to be a practical hands-on training, for effectiveness of training delivery, we are limiting the seats to maximum 15 participants. Consequently also, we will organise in-person participation only, no hybrid or online participation option is available. In addition to that, due to limited resources, we invite participants who are based in Vientiane capital or vicinity who would not need long-distance travel and accommodation support (apologies). 

Therefore, if you are interested in attending the training, please apply as soon as possible by accessing this application platform:

The application link will be open until Tuesday 3 October 2023. If the number of applications is more than the seats available, we will select the participant considering the overall mix: early-mid levels, social-physical science, junior-senior, etc.
