Contract & Project Risk Management & Compliance Training in Tashkent, Uzbekistan

Program Overview

One of the critical outcomes of contract and project management is to ensure that risks to owners and contractor are identified and controlled in a proactive way so that both parties are satisfied with the project outcome. While world-class project and contract management cannot, of itself, make risks “go away”, it can, and should, identify the risks and opportunities, determine who is responsible for managing each individual risk, and for the consequences should the risk occur.

The aim of this course is to enable participants to plan, manage and control project risks. By taking this course, participants will learn to develop project risk management plans and identify project risks related to a project’s triple constraints which are: scope, schedule and resources. They will learn to qualify and quantify project risks and develop appropriate risk responses, and will design and calculate key performance indicators for monitoring and controlling project risks.

Program Attendees

This course is designed for:

  • Project Risk Managers
  • Project Managers
  • Functional & SeniorManagement
  • Risk & Compliance Managers
  • Individuals who want to develop and refine their project risk management skills
Program Outcome

By the end of this course the participants will acquire:

  • Knowledge to move contracts and project management from the tactical/reactive to the more important proactive/strategic focus
  • Critical understanding of the risk mitigation process
  • Ability to Identify project risks related to scope, schedule and resources
  • Ability to Perform quantitative and qualitative risk assessments
  • Skills to Plan strategies for negative and positive risks
  • Skills in allocating contract and procurement risk
  • Ability to identify the warning signs of cost overruns, schedule delays, and poor quality, as early as possible in the project to minimize or mitigate the impact
Program Methodology

The course uses a mix of interactive techniques, such as brief presentations by the consultant and the participants and group exercises. The course also includes calculations and analysis of real case studies related to contract & project risk management.

Climate Change and Water Resources Management Workshop in Tallinn, Estonia

Program Introduction

Water resource scarcity is exacerbated by growing pressures from increasing population, as well as industrial and farming needs. Conflicting demands require management. Societies’ ability to manage resource problems can be severely compromised by the increased frequency of extreme climatic events that are the consequence of climate change. Water resource management becomes a crucial element, especially in drought preparedness.

Program Attendees

This training is meant for practitioners, decision and policy makers working in the development/environment/climate change adaptation sectors and specifically those in disaster management, volunteers and staff working with organizations tasked with human development. This includes individuals working with government institutions, NGOs the UN, intergovernmental bodies and the private sector. Students and young professionals who would like to increase their knowledge in the field are also welcome.

Program Objective

The aim of the course is to contribute to reducing the vulnerabilities of people and societies to shifts in hydro-meteorological trends, increased variability and extreme events. This training course will focus on managing risk and dealing with uncertainty on climate change on water resources through various measures, including monitoring known hazards and risks, reducing the unknown risks through system research, and determining the range and type of relevant uncertainties. The course will also focus on the identification of adaptation measures with particular emphasis on droughts. It will also cover the important need to protect and restore ecosystems that provide critical land and water resources and services. The course will further discuss the need to close the gap between water supply and demand and to resolve water resources conflicts.

Program Outcome

This training is intended to increase the participants’ understanding of climate change and to explore possible solutions. There are actions that can be taken to prepare for a more variable climate and we can make a case to our policymakers to prepare for change. The most important immediate action concerns the way we manage our water resources. Improving our management of water today will prepare us to adapt tomorrow. Improved understanding of our water resources will allow more efficient and flexible allocation systems and better investment in infrastructure, both to improve access to water and reduce risks from climate change.
