REPORT | CIFAL

ATLANTA2

Foreword

CIFAL Atlanta’s 2015 accomplishments, demonstrate a year’s worth of dedication and international cooperation. We have continued with our vision of remaining one of the best resources of knowledge exchange for

government

authorities and civil society leaders, particularly in the Western Hemisphere.

This

year we were able to train over

1,500 leaders from over 60 countries

on topics relating to economic development, competitiveness, airports and aviation, and sustainability. These seminars and programs will help the local authorities and decision-makers better their citizens’ lives.

This

year also marked the first year of our innovative partnership with Kennesaw State University (KSU). Through this relationship, we were able to further enhance our outreach and training delivery capacity. We plan to continue to work with KSU in the future and are very excited about the possibilities that can be achieved through this relationship in 2016 and beyond.

We thank all of our partners and sponsors for their commitment to CIFAL. We are very excited to work with you all in the future as we forge ahead in accomplishing our mission.Slide5

Daniel S.

Papp, Ph.D. President, Kennesaw State University

Trustee, CIFAL Atlanta

The partnership among Kennesaw State University, the United Nations Institute for Training and Research, and CIFAL Atlanta represents an historic alliance with the potential to produce synergies with deep and lasting impact.As our world faces increasingly difficult social, economic and environmental challenges, exceptional education and training for leaders in various domains across the globe can help expand the vision and infrastructure for progress. Kennesaw State is proud to be a leader in the field of global education. The University has been very deliberate over the past two decades in developing programs, resources and partnerships that give our students, faculty, administration and community extensive access to global understanding and intercultural competencies. We are perhaps most proud of the capabilities within each of our academic colleges and the collaborations among them to incorporate global perspectives into all they do.This

partnership provides a unique and welcomed opportunity to lend Kennesaw State’s expertise and knowledge-generating capacity to the exciting and critical work of CIFAL Atlanta and UNITAR as they work to expand channels of information sharing, communication and education among the peoples, governments and communities of the world. At the same time, the experience and exposure these organizations can provide our students and faculty is inestimable.We are very excited to have CIFAL housed within Kennesaw State’s Division of Global Affairs! We look forward to discovering and developing the opportunities made possible by this partnership.

Sincerely,Slide6

A Letter from the Executive Director

Over the past two years, CIFAL Atlanta has taken a significant number of administrative steps to enhance the center's ability to operate and serve as a change agent across the world: new systems of accountancy, new standards of reporting, and new efforts in development.  Although such changes rarely make headlines, they provide stability to the organization and a springboard for progress.

Most notably, as both Chairman Lesser and Dr. Papp mentioned, our relationship with Kennesaw State has grown and flourished.  Our integrated partnership allows us both to pursue a central mission: educating and training local actors in the areas of development, good governance, and human and civil rights.  In addition, we are extremely part of our long, healthy relationship with Hartsfield-Jackson Atlanta International Airport, the world's most traveled and most efficient airport.  The general manager, Miguel

Southwell

, and his team of consummate professionals make our work together a delight.

Now, in 2016, we are poised to resume an aggressive schedule of programs, training workshops, and seminars both locally and abroad.  The United Nations adopted the post-2015 development agenda, the Sustainable Development Goals, which will inform our work this coming year and in the future.  We are excited for what the future holds and invite you to join us.

Sincerely,

Atlanta, USA

In

April 2015,

CIFAL Atlanta, in partnership with Airports Council International and Hartsfield-Jackson Atlanta International Airport, held a three-day long learning event on airport emergency planning with 27 senior level airport officials from developing countries throughout the Caribbean, South America and Africa. The Atlanta based seminar focused on strategies for airport emergency action planning with a focus on operations training, management training and public safety and security.

Through

a blend of sessions consisting of short presentations, participant dialogue and activities including hands-on training exercises, the seminar presented practical strategies to assist participants in identifying the essential steps needed in improving their airport operations in preparation for emergency airport events.

Participants

were able to identify landside, airside and terminal management operations that best support sustainable airport emergency planning practices. In addition, they were able to identify airfield and general maintenance best practices and gained skills regarding the implementation of airport public safety and security practices at the local level, inclusive of access control, badging, TSA checkpoints, baggage handling and compliance systems. They gained a better understanding of the roles that police bomb squads, K9 units, Centralized Control and Command Centers (C4), Aircraft Rescue and Fire Fighting (ARFF) and Emergency Medical Services (EMS) all play during an emergency event.

In the first week of May 2015, CIFAL-Atlanta, in collaboration with the Michael J. Coles College of Business at Kennesaw State University (KSU), CENECOOP, Fundepos University, Cooperative of the Americas (COOP), Confederation of Cooperatives of the Caribbean, Central America and South America (CCC-CA), and the Ministry of Labor of the government of Costa Rica, held a three-day long learning event in San Jose, Costa Rica on cooperative competitiveness and the digital economy.

There were a total of 74 participants and presenters representing 17 cooperatives, 4 universities, 3 financial institutions, 6 cooperative associations/NGOS, and 2 government agencies from 12 Latin American countries, the USA, and France. 52 high-ranked leaders were among those in attendance.

Through the use of multiple panel sessions and presentations, the conference focused on the improvement of management and leadership capabilities of cooperatives in the Americas in order to better prepare them in addressing the economic challenges in an increasingly competitive and global marketplace. In addition, the conference examined the importance of fostering a digital ecosystem that would allow independent cooperatives to take advantage of economies of scale, provide better service to its members, and implement more efficient and coherent transactional, marketing, financing and capitalization activities.

Participants left the conference familiar with an economic development model specific to cooperatives, including the skills necessary for implementing professional managerial training programs in the face of competition from globalization, accessing and developing internal and external capital markets, transitioning to a digital economy, rethinking the regulatory and legislative framework, and integrating with academia, society, and government agencies.Slide22

Air Route Development and Incentives

, 201

Working in conjunction with the Airports International Council (ACI), CIFAL Atlanta organized a seminar on air route development and incentives which was held in Lima, Peru from May 25th through May 26th.

 Twenty senior officials from airports in Columbia, Ecuador, Mexico, Peru, and Panama were in attendance at the seminar, which focused on the development of air routes in regional airports in Latin America and the Caribbean and their impact on economic development. Short presentations and hands-on training exercises were aimed at fostering the sharing of best practices and cooperation between airlines and at learning contemporary techniques regarding the principles of airport marketing, development of incentives for the establishment and growth of air routes, the company airport-airline relationship (including the behavior of airlines) and the participation of other economic sectors in the development of air routes.

 

CIFAL Atlanta and ACI have had a long partnership in providing programs aimed at helping airports in developing countries to improve their practices regarding operations, economics, management, safety, and security in order to keep up with global industry growth.

Washington, D.C., USA

In November 2015, in partnership with Kennesaw State University and the U.S. Institute of Peace, Peacekeeping and Stability Operations Institute, CIFAL Atlanta hosted 20 representatives from private and public donor organizations, including the U.S. State Department, international NGOs and representatives from the government security sector and academia.

The goal of the workshop was to develop planning frameworks to help bilateral and multilateral donors and international NGOs anticipate and address the challenges raised by reductions in financial support (withdrawal) and maximize any potential benefits. It also helped participants identify grassroots strategies for adapting to donor withdrawal that are amenable to scaling and diffusion among local civil society: the ultimate goal being to empower local civil society as donor financial support declines.

The Fellows were hosted by Georgia State University’s Andrew Young School of Policy Studies for six weeks. The six-week long institute was geared towards the preparation of future leaders in public and non-profit organizations and future scholars in public policy and administration.

The

experiences and skills attained will allow Fellows to contribute to improving the accountability and transparency of government back home. Each week participants explored themes that included various topics related to public management and policy, including fiscal decentralization and subnational government finance, tools of public management and policy analysis, public administration, budgeting, civic engagement, and expenditure policy related to education, healthcare and criminal justice.

As part

of the event, CIFAL Atlanta presented on the UN Sustainable Development Goals and the role that young professionals can play in implementing the new goals by engaging their local communities.

Gender and Women’s Studies Panel

October 29, 2015 Atlanta, USA

As

part of the Kennesaw State University (KSU) Year of the Portuguese Speaking World program, CIFAL Atlanta assisted in organizing and moderating a Gender and Women’s Studies Panel on 29

th October 2015 on the KSU campus in Kennesaw, Georgia, USA.

 

Three Brazilianists

, who are current professors and researchers from Georgia State University, Spelman College and Kennesaw State University, presented on topics related to the current and historical role of women throughout Brazil. Participants learned about the history and recent research done specifically on sex tourism in Bahia, Brazil, Brazilian women’s filmmaking and intersectionality in the lives of black women activists in Salvador, Brazil. By examining this history, participants were able to better understand the significance of ending discrimination against women in the workplace and “full and effective participation and equal opportunities for leadership at all levels of decision making” in the public life of women, as it pertains to Goal 5 of the Sustainable Development Goals.

 

In addition, participants learned how the cultural and sexual economies of tourism are inextricably linked in Salvador, Brazil’s tourism industry and understood better the intersectionality in the lives of black women activists in Salvador. Participants were able to identify forms of violence against women and girls in the public and private spheres within the region, especially as it pertains to sexual

exploitation. The three presentations were followed by a lively question and answer period.
