TRAINING NATIONALS TRAINING AND COMMUNICATING TOWARD TRANSFORMATION
International Technical Cooperation Phases and modalities in international cooperation AIM contribute to sustainable poverty reduction.
Phase 1: Aimed at preparing the colonies for a peaceful transition to independence by supporting the emergence of stable self-reliant communities. -Approaches: - ‘under-development’ by the so-called ‘developed countries’. - (Foreign) technical assistance mainly concerned transferring (modern/western) knowledge and technologies. International Technical Cooperation
Phase 2: Aim at shifting from top-down, technocratic and economics-based interventions to greater civil involvement. This pointed to the need for not just ‘technical’ assistance but also for ‘social’ assistance (Röling & De Zeeuw, 1983). - Organizations operating at the meso level (e.g. associations, or service delivery NGOs), acted as intermediaries in reaching the ultimate target groups. The main aim during this period was to assist these organizations in implementing their interventions, rather than focus on capacity building at the organizational level. International Technical Cooperation
Phase 3: Two main elements of support to partner organisations: Funding the implementation of development interventions by partners, in order to alleviate poverty, strengthen civil society and support advocacy and lobbying. Technical (TA) assistance to partner organisations aimed at organisational strengthening (OS), institutional development (ID) and human resource development (HRD). Such support focuses on capacity building as a basic requirement for organisations to implement their projects/programmes effectively and efficiently. International Technical Cooperation
