Building capacity of local partners

Building capacity of local partners was an important part of the project to enable achievement of results.


Capacity was built through online training and informal discussions.


Without capable partners, no field activities would have been implemented during the COVID-19 travel restrictions.

* Capacity building of key local stakeholders included in project design

* Availability of smartphones, computers and network

* Expert trainers available and able to flexibly adapt to online training

* While most stakeholders prefer in-person capacity-building events, responses to the online training was extremely positivea and could be built into future projects to reduce costs and increase flexibility of delivery options
