||Capacity Development Learning Module 1: Enhancing FAO's practices for supporting Capacity Development in Member Countries
||The purpose of this learning module is to provide FAO staff and
consultants at all levels with a basic understanding and knowledge
of Capacity Development (CD), reflecting the international debate
as well as FAO?s perspective on CD. It also provides some key
concepts for adopting changes in responsibilities, behaviours
and attitudes that are consistent with FAO?s new role in CD.
Specifically, by the end of this module you will
have gained a deeper understanding of:
1. the evolving role of CD in general and in the context of FAO?s work
2. the challenges and success factors that are key for an
effective CD practice ? one that leads to sustainable
outcomes and impacts in Member Countries
3. key principles, concepts and methodologies suitable for promoting CD
4. your own role in supporting an enhanced CD practice in FAO.
By providing an in-depth perspective of CD in the core business areas
of FAO, this module is fully complementary to the UN Development
Group (UNDG) e-learning course on CD, which addresses all areas
of development. It will be followed by other in-depth modules that
will look at mainstreaming CD more specifically into FAO?s work.
