Further information Subcomponent 2.4

This goal will be attained through the design and implementation of the Strategic Capacity Building Plan, which depends on the existence of no previous objection on the part of donors.  Besides the capacity building activities which will be carried out by the Program, this Plan shall include specific goals and indicators to monitor the achieved results.

Prority areas for capacity building

The Program will support capacity building considered to be strategic, technical and administrative. Technical training should be in accordance with the prority theme lines and be related to the targets set in the PA’s Pluriannual Strategic Plan (PEP). Administrative training aims at the development of the operational abilities of managers in the Program routine, following Funbio’s rules.

Theme lines are the following:  management plan, management board, protection, territorial consolidation, integrated management, public policies, fund raising, and conflict resolution.  Other themes which are not mentioned here may be identified as being relevant to the Program.

The Capacity Building Strategic Plan must include a diagnosis of the present situation and propose structuring actions to overcome the shortcomings, taking advantage of the identified opportunities for capacity building.  Furthermore, a work plan will be proposed, including the activities, responsibilities and schedule for implantation.

A Working Group (GT) will monitor the subcomponent through implementation reports and will assess the application of the acquired knowledge in the efficient management of the PAs.

Available opportunities should be publicized in Arpa’s website, as well as in the ‘Cérebro’ System.  Funbio will be in charge of activities operation and will act following the Strategic Capacity Building Plan guidelines.
