An initiative of the International Training Centre of the ILO and the UN System Staff College
Capacity development is a core function of the United Nations Development System. Many UN organizations emphasize the importance of capacity development in their strategies to contribute to the achievement of the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development, and for several of them capacity development is their primary mandate.
The United Nations Development Group advocates for a common approach to capacity development and to build on the know-how across the various United Nations training institutions in order to make sure that training and knowledge is updated, optimized and made available in the best possible way to UN Country Teams and member States. An important aspect of this common UN capacity development approach is the facilitation of institutional capacity development support for national-level and regional level training institutions, in order to amplify outreach and sustain local delivery capacity over time.
The Forum will provide a platform for UN entities with a mandate for institutional capacity development to share good practices in capacity development for national-level and regional level training institutions. The Forum is open for chief operations officers and members of management, to jointly explore opportunities for synergies and scale effects through interagency learning partnerships.
Maximize the sharing of experiences and good practices for peer learning on capacity development for training institutions
Explore in depth selected tools and methodologies for capacity development for training institutions
Provide space for inter-agency networking and identify opportunities for collaboration
In order to bring out a maximum number of good practices, much of the Forum will be organized into interactive panel discussion sessions and fishbowls. Selected examples will be provided with more time to present and discuss with the group.
Participants will be UN officials in charge of institutional capacity development strategy design and portfolio management, here with focus on capacity development activities for training institutions. Represented agencies include UN entities specialized in learning and capacity development as well as UN entities that provide such services as only one element of their mandate among others.
The Forum is designed and delivered by ITCILO and UNSSC. Facilitators will be from both UN agencies and familiar with delivering training and capacity development for training institutions. Panelists and presenters will include officials from various UN entities.
The costs for the venue, including meals at the UN training campus in Turin are covered by ITCILO. Participating agencies are asked to cover the staff travel costs for their staff.
