Ethiopia Transport Sector: Joint Capacity Development Learning Event

How can the transport sector in Ethiopia strengthen its capacity through a joint approach? How can fragmented, often supply driven capacity building support be transformed into a more coherent, holistic approach that addresses both sector-wide issues and capacity building in individual organisations, in a sector with multiple national public and private actors, as well as multiple development partners? 

These were the topics for the first pilot Joint Capacity Development Learning Event, held in Addis Ababa in October 2008 on the initiative of the European Commission. After a mix of two half-day workshops for the broader Transport Sector Working Group and 2,5 days intensive work in a small core group, a joint approach and framework was endorsed for the detailed development of results-oriented and government-lead capacity building programmes at two levels:

  • Sector and sub-sector level, addressing cross-cutting and broader issues 
  • Individual organisational level, including both public and private actors. 

It is expected that a fully funded, joint programme can be ready in mid-2010.
