The Impact Alliance is working closely with the UNDP to gather capacity development experiences from around the world as part of the 'Capacity is Development' campaign. The members of our network have some amazing experiences to share, and this is a great opportunity to showcase your hard work, grow the knowledge base of what works and influence policy makers. We look forward to hearing from you!
The United Nations Development Programme is pleased to announce the opening of the 'Capacity is Development' Knowledge Fair and invites you to share your experience. The knowledge fair seeks to collect experiences on policies, investments and programs that have proven successful in driving human and institutional capacity development in diverse settings around the world. These experiences will feed directly into the 'Capacity is Development' global event.
We invite you to submit an entry by Friday, 5 February, 2010.
Your entry can take the form of a short two-page case story, video or image.
The top five finalists will be awarded an expense paid trip to personally showcase their work at the 'Capacity is Development' global event in Marrakech, Morocco 17-19 March, 2010.
Entries should attempt to illuminate through words or images the impact of capacity development in practice. While diverse expressions of capacity development are welcomed, there is a special interest in gathering stories from three priority focal areas:
- Sub-national capacity development: local solutions, national strengths.
- Capacity development in post-conflict and transitional situations.
- Fostering the rise and resilience of middle-income countries.
Please forward this message to other networks and colleagues.
The UNDP Capacity Development Group is working in partnership with the Impact Alliance and LenCD - Learning Network on Capacity Development to implement this initiative.
