Let's talk about local capacity, how to build, not kill

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule, view media, leave feedback and see who's attending!

We (implementers, donors) are investing a lot of energy in developing local capacity, however, sometimes instead of strengthening we are damaging it. Or, at least, don't invest in effective local capacity, but invest in something less useful then it could be. So how to develop local capacity? How effective local capacity should look like? We will bring together representatives of local capacity and of "investors" to local capacity to map the problem and try to find solutions. Let's have an informal talk on this, share our experience, exchange ideas and, maybe, find a better way to develop local capacity. There will be two different conversations (because of sessions being merged): 1. How to build local capacity, not to kill it - based on Former Soviet Union experience 2. Building appropriate human-centered technologies for the African philanthropic ecosystem: The case of EPIC-Africa, with the goal "to share our experience in building a platform adapted to local realities".
