Capacity Building

The key to success of a project/program depends upon the human resources engaged in planning, designing and implementation of project activities. It has been observed that Public Sector Projects are generally delayed, cost increased and benefits delayed to the target group. The main reasons are capacity constrains in management of development projects. The NGOs working in Pakistan also generally do not have the capacity to undertake evaluation of project/program.

In order to quantify the areas of intervention for capacity building of professionals, Community of Evaluators Pakistan undertook a Public Sector Need Assessment. The data was collected from 403 respondents of Federal and Provincial Governments. The assessment indicates that 74% of the respondents require training in Project Preparation, 79% in Project Implementation and 78% in Mid-line and End-line Evaluation. A training needs assessment has also been undertaken for the planning & development department of government of Khyber Pakhtunkhwa. The Government of KP according designed a training programme for the officers of P&D and Line Departments in Project Management. The core team of CoE imparted training in Project Management to 160 officers of Government of Khyber Pakhtunkhwa.
