Sustainable capacity development in provincial areas

Sustainable capacity development in provincial areas

A team of ten civil society capacity development coaches from Cord, PADETC (Participatory Development Training Center), and LDA (Learning for Development Association) will be trained next month ready to take up their task of building capacity among local community organisations in selected locactions in Champassak, Savannaket, Xiengkhouang, Vientiane, Laungprabang and Oudoumxay.

From April 2018, the team of coaches will begin the task of identifying community groups and civil society organisations that they will provide long term capacity development support to over the next two years. Through this support it is anticipated that community groups active in rural locations will have stronger skills across a range of skill-areas making them more able to respond to the needs of people in their local communities and to contribute towards Laos’ development goals.
