EC Workshop on Technical Cooperation reform and Capacity Development

04
Jul
4 July 2011, 9:00 to 5 July 2011, 17:00

The purpose of the event, which took place in Brussels on 4 and 5 July 2011, was to further strengthen the technical cooperation reform process of the EC and to take stock of currently achieved results.

The workshop also provided opportunities to look at selected cases from the EC and other organisations and to discuss how a new approach to TC can effectively contribute to CD.

Finally, the event has identified messages to be taken forward at the next High-Level Forum taking place in Busan, Korea, in November 2011.

This workshop is open by invitation only to EU Headquarters, EU Delegations and development practitioners from Member States’ development agencies working on CD and TC issues.

Background:

In mid-2008, as part of its commitment to aid effectiveness, the European Commission adopted a reform to enhance its approach to Technical Cooperation (TC) and Project Implementation Units (PIUs) with a view to support Capacity Development (CD) more effectively. The European Union also addressed this issue as part of its Operational Framework for Aid Effectiveness, adopted in November 2009 by the EU Council.

Find below the workshop's agenda as well as the workshop's background note.
