Many training or capacity building programmes are based on the provision of theory and technical information, with application in practice coming afterwards. Adult learning theory is based on the opposite: learning starts from experience and with experimentation. Adults bring with them the experience amassed during their lifetime that is related or unrelated to the programme’s theme, and this influences the way they filter, analyse and apply new information. Ignoring their experience may have an impact on the effectiveness of the activity or programme: the participants may not appreciate the information in the way intended by the person providing it. With this in mind, when Burundi’s Ministry for the Environment asked for help in preparing it for its new EIA duties, the NCEA proposed a multi-year, adjustable learning-bydoing approach. This article describes this approach and
how it worked in practice.
