More info:

This seminar presented civilian capacity development lessons from triangular South-South cooperation projects (which include a partner from the global North), a model that has recently received increasing attention—not least from the New Deal agenda. Field reflections drawn from two innovative models for capacity development using mentoring, coaching, and peer-to-peer learning will be presented. Participants will be asked to help identify a possible path forward for the international community to better support the rebuilding or strengthening of public administrations after conflict, with a specific focus on South-South, triangular, and regional cooperation models.
