Under project funded by IDRC in cooperation with CDS, ARIJ completed project entitled "Capacity Building in Resource Mobilization (CB-RM)" which involves the formulation of a resource mobilization strategy to enable the institute to solicit and manage financial and in kind resources; seeking and identifying potential funding sources. The purpose of the strategy is to help ARIJ broaden its donor base; making more predictable the financing of the institute from its traditional sources, in addition to improving the capabilities of ARIJ staff in the development and submission of projects for consideration by potential donors especially in the field of applied research. All project activities are implemented in a participatory approach; involving the entire staff as well as members of the board through conducting 3 day-workshops, consisting of in-job training, open discussions and the formulation of strategic plans for each of the institute’s departments.
