Capacity building and project implementation may be complex and sometimes difficult. Certain methods that may apply to certain communities may not be applicable to other communities because of cultural, religious, climate conditions, gender, sexual orientation and many other differences among them. It is important to take into consideration such differences and reflect on how they should affect our selecting of methods.
The course will provide tools for recognizing possible complexities and means to diffuse them. We will investigate and analyse case studies, attempt to identify possible intersectional-intercultural challenges and discuss ways to improve our methods. We will also discuss success stories and learn from them how we can better ourselves.
By the end of the course, students will have a broader view of capacity building and projects implementation issues and they will be able to better analyse new situations and improve the results of their work.
