Partnerships for Development Management Training in Colombia

On November 18th, CAD offered a workshop on Management of Partnerships for Development for several Colombian institutions leaders in partnership management and development programs promotion. The course was organized by the Andi Foundation and supported by organizations such as “Pacto Mundial de Colombia” and the Swedish and Dutch cooperation.

The course was attended by representatives of the Government of Colombia, from both the National Agency for Overcoming Extreme Poverty (ANSPE), and the Presidential Agency for International Cooperation of Colombia (APC), as well as specialized organizations in promoting entrepreneurship as ASHOKA, representatives of United Nations Global Pact in Colombia, CECODES, and representatives of the Andi and several bilateral agencies.

The project is part of The Partnering Initiative, which aims to create Partnerships for Development Acceleration Centers, in order to increase the impact of partnerships achieving transformative effects, creating more access to development and improving the quality of life of the disadvantaged communities. The initiative, which began in early 2013 in the context of the negotiations of the Declaration of Busan, has selected four pilot projects (Colombia, Zambia, Mozambique and Bangladesh) to assess the potential to increase the impact of alliances incubating and accelerating implementation in hybrid models of co-financing.
