Most small and developing states do not participate equally in global policy processes. By starting with the empowerment of individuals, Diplo’s capacity development support has strengthened NGOs, government institutions, and global policy processes themselves.
We believe that good capacity development support
Therefore, our long-term programmes combine:
Diplo’s capacity development has the following specific features:
Capacity Development Programme in ICT Policy and IG for ACP countries
Our two-year Capacity Development Programme (2009-2011) in ICT Policy and IG for African, Caribbean and Pacific countries included several projects, courses, activities, and publications. Over 500 participants from 60 ACP countries benefited directly from the training. Many more benefited from the programme by following the activities online, reading the publications, and engaging with the community in one way or another. Find out more on our archive site.
Climate change diplomacy
Beginning in 2008, Diplo has initiated several conferences and events, and created a new online course with scholarship opportunities for diplomats, civil servants and academics from small and developing states. We built a vibrant online community, created illustrations for use in publications, awareness building, and training, and initiated a project to translate key climate change terms. Find out more on our summary page.
Public diplomacy for Roma
As a result of our pioneering work in 2005/2006, there are now more Roma diplomats who represent Roma communities in policy debates at both national and EU level. Find out more on our archive site.
Human rights and health diplomacy in Serbia & Montenegro
Over 50 judges, government officials, lawyers, medical doctors, civil society activists and academics participated in our tailored programmes on UN Human Rights treaties and global health initiatives (2005/2006).
Diplo is forging new partnerships with organisations worldwide to address pressing issues in diplomacy and international relations. Some of these projects will become the capacity development programmes of the future.
