Enhancing FAO staff’s in the management of EU resources

The PuntoSud–Food and Agriculture Organisation of the United Nations (FAO) capacity building program was designed to ensure a smooth EU-FAO long-lasting cooperation with the common goal of eradicating extreme poverty and hunger around the world.

The EU has always been one of the major resource partners of FAO.

In the period 2008-2016, FAO entrusted several projects to PuntoSud with the objective to strengthening FAO’s staff (FAO Country Representatives, technical and operational staff active in Latin America, Middle East, Central and South-East Asia, Africa and Europe) with regard of the mobilisation of EU resources for FAO development programme worldwide.

The main project activities may be summarised as follows:

  • Study and analysis of the European institutions, their decision-making mechanisms and policies on international development cooperation and humanitarian aid.
  • Development, dissemination and updating of a “flexible” training module (adaptable to the needs of the various FAO offices in the world) delivered in 29 sessions with the aim of facilitating the FAO-EU cooperation at all stages of the project cycle.
  • The development of an eLearning to facilitate the work of the FAO regional offices on a continuous basis.

This learning programme aimed at ensuring:

  • An assessment to gather information about the most common criticalities encountered by FAO in the processes of design, implementation and evaluation of FAO-EU projects;
  • The identification and sharing of information of the main EU cooperation policies (e.g. strategic documents and multi-annual programming);
  • The development of a good partnership FAO-EU, encouraging proper planning of interventions within the guidelines proposed by the EU;
  • The creation of proper guidelines for accountable implementation and reporting of projects, in line with the FAO and EU PAGoDA procedures.
