This field-tested, six-day curriculum enables private voluntary organizations (PVOs) and partners to replicate the Desgning for Behavior Change (DBC) workshop conducted with CORE Group members in multiple countries and regions around the globe. The curriculum combines handouts and facilitator materials with easy-to-use training guidelines.

The Designing for Behavior Change (DBC) Curriculum responds to community development program managers’ and planners’ need for a practical behavioral framework that strategically aids them in planning for maximum effectiveness. The curriculum is built on the original BEHAVE Framework, developed by AED and expanded on by members of CORE Group's Social and Behavior Change (SBC) Working Group and the Food Security and Nutrition Network SBC Task Force. The curriculum trains participants to apply the DBC Framework to improve development programming.
