Sustainable Development for Mission Personnel

Department of Foreign Affairs and International Trade (DFAIT)

The Need

DFAIT is known for its commitment to sustainable development principles, which it promotes internationally and practices internally.  One dimension of this commitment is a constant search for ways to “green” its own operations. To that end, it sought help in developing a training program that would engage Canadian and locally-hired staff at Canadian embassies, missions and satellite offices around the world in finding locally-appropriate sustainable operating practices.


Androcom was engaged to develop a suite of seminar-based learning modules that could be used in half- and full-day programs for three distinct occupational groupings – administrative officers, political/aid officers, and trade/economic officers.  Delivered through the use of leader-led presentations, three “core” modules and separate modules geared to the needs of each occupational group each consist of several short lessons dealing with specific subject areas, interspersed with group exercises, questions, discussion and feedback tailored to local issues and opportunities.
