Final Annual report 2008 on the EUWI activity

The European Commission is taking a lead role in championing a results-driven reform of technical cooperation. In a video interview to mark the launch of the new Capacity4dev.eu platform, Koos Richelle, Director General of the Commission's development arm, EuropeAid, explains the modalities of that reform.

It may seem straightforward to prepare Terms of Reference for an assessment of the capacity of an organisation or a group of organisations. But actually it is not that simple. Good TOR must, among other things, provide clear indications of why the assessment is made, who will make it and how and when they'll do this.
The impact of Technical cooperation (TC) delivery in Mozambique is unsatisfactory and strategic and coordinated planning of TC is urgent required. This, in a nutshell, is the general consensus that came out of a series of meetings attended in March 2009 by Ms Manzitti, with EC Delegation staff, EU Member States and represtative of the government of Mozambique.
