General requirements

Participants • Of course! • This workshop is designed for a limited number of participants, 20-24 maximum. In addition, it is helpful if participants come in pairs from each organisation represented (i.e. the number of organisations represented in the training workshop would be 10-12).

Facilitators • Also very necessary! ;-) • The workshop has been and can be facilitated by one person alone, particularly if he/she is supported in the logistics by somebody else. However, two facilitators are definitely preferable.

One • • •

big room In this room, it should be possible to accommodate all participants with enough space to move around. If at all possible, chairs should be arranged around three round tables. If not, they should be arranged as a horseshoe. The room should be large enough to allow people to breathe and move around, but not as large or in as noisy an environment that it becomes difficult to hear each other. It would be good if it were possible to stick paper on the walls, so that the reference flipcharts can be kept on display for the duration of the workshop. In the evening of the first day, participants will have homework to do. It would be good if participants were allowed to use the room to do such homework and if the facilitator(s) were available to answer questions/ clarify etc.

Two break away rooms (as appropriate) • If there are few participants (e.g. 18 or so), and especially if the chairs are arranged around three round tables, this might not be necessary. However, if the group is larger (up to 24 or so) or tables cannot be moved around freely or there is not enough space in the main room, one or two break away rooms might be necessary.

Three flip charts and plenty of thick felt pens • Absolutely necessary!!! There is a lot of group work in the workshop.

Copies of the UNODC handbook on monitoring and evaluation • Apart from the handouts of the sessions, the workshop is very much based on and makes reference to the UNODC handbook entitled Monitoring and evaluating youth substance abuse prevention programmes. Throughout the training materials, we refer to this publication as "the handbook". Each participant should have a copy. The handbook can be downloaded for free from the UNODC website n.html. It is available in all the UN official languages (Arabic, Chinese,
English, French, Spanish, Russian). If you have any difficulty accessing the
document, please do not hesitate to contact us at [email protected]
We might even have some spare copies for you!


Paper pads and pens for the participants Computer and projector (optional)
• There are only a few of presentations in the workshop. If you do not have access to a computer and a projector, you could print them on transparencies for the overhead projector or you could prepare flip charts with the main points and distribute the printed presentations as reference.
Materials for each session • Some sessions require special materials. You will find these requirements at the beginning of each session.

How to use these materials
• For each session, a file/ document is provided explaining how the session should be conducted. These files are for the facilitator, they would not be normally distributed to the participants (unless the plan is that participants will in turn undertake the training themselves).
• These files/ documents normally include the following information: A list of documents to be prepared and other actions to be undertaken in preparation for the session. A description of how the session should be conducted. This normally includes introductory points, points that should be highlighted during the discussion, concluding points, when and how handouts should be distributed, etc. An indication of how many minutes each part of the session should take.
• Exercise sheets, exercise tables, handouts for reference are provided as separate files/ documents. The numbering tries to follow the sequence in which these files/ documents are used during the sessions.
• On the basis of the sequence of the activities, two files are provided. The first one is an outline of the sessions with the main activities listed. This file is for the facilitator and would not normally be distributed to the participants. The second is a programme of the workshop to be distributed to participants and to be discussed in the introductory sessions.
• If you notice any discrepancy or unclarity, we would be very
grateful if you would let us know at [email protected]! Thank
you very much in advance for your feedback!!!
