As more and more actors are involved in the search of durable solutions, there is an urgent need to strengthen the capacity of practitioners and policy-makers to provide them with the required legal and technical skills to address durable solutions. It is critical to build a common understanding on how to address durable solutions for displacement affected communities in the region.
ReDSS objective under our capacity development pillar is to provide high quality support to members and partners on program development and design; collective monitoring and learning. Participatory and consensus building approaches have been ReDSS mantra and this has supported greater ownership by members and partners who have participated in trainings and program development processes.
Our capacity development strategy guides the secretariat’s collective engagement by defining the tools and approaches that ReDSS is applying to support capacity development at regional and country level as well as the critical success factors and indicators to measure progress.
The 2021-2023 capacity development strategy lays out two outcomes as follows:
- Outcome 1: Support a collective agenda on operational research and analysis to inform durable solutions policy and programming
- Outcome 2: Increase use of relevant research and analysis by ReDSS members and partners
Our strategy is set within a continuous reflection and adaptation learning cycle to simultaneously address key technical gaps and operational challenges. As the objective is not to have a one-off events, our approach is to supports a conducive learning approach through:
ReDSS Learning Approaches
To evaluate its learning and knowledge management strategy, ReDSS applies the Kirk Patrick’s model which is a worldwide standard for evaluating the effectiveness of training and learning approaches.
