Skills Development

Support for skills development will remain an important element in the ECA service mix. The Commission’s efforts to enhance learning at the individual level have been dominated by training approaches. These are often ad hoc in nature, and delivered by different parts of the organization using different standards, as a result a clear and comprehensive under­standing of actual impact and follow-up has been lacking. In the new structure, all capacity development support at the individual level is to be delivered through IDEP, with harmonized quality standards. IDEP pursues greater diver­sification of the thematic focus drawing on the evolving research at ECA and on integration of cutting-edge knowledge, including the hetero­dox alternatives that are available in different domains of development planning and eco­nomic governance
