Capacity Building

One of the mainstays of the partnership program with Africa are capacity building workshops. Skills in project management, networking, prioritization of activities, and fundraising are crucial for African National Commissions for UNESCO to deal with limited resources and make a significant contribution to UNESCO programs.

The aim of these workshops is to improve the competencies of National Commissions and to promote an intensive exchange of know-how by building regional networks. Between 2008 and 2015, the DUK has supported 15 capacity-building workshops initiated by African National Commissions.

Moreover, the DUK organizes working visits for African National Commissions in order to promote mutual exchange on each other’s functioning and key activities. At the same time, working visits aim at identifying new cooperation projects.

All National Commissions of Sub-Saharan countries are incorporated in the partnership program.
