Human Resource Development Programme - The Concept

Capacity building involves much more though than just conducting training courses and workshops. It implies a multi level system to develop networks, institutional systems, organisations and individuals. Without awareness, without a basis for new approaches, and without better skills for using new tools and instruments in urban planning, industrial development, environmental governance, disaster preparedness and consumer protection, development for sustainability cannot be achieved.

The Human Resource Development (HRD) platform is a webbased system with tools to support the planning, implementation, delivery and monitoring of large-scale capacity development programmes. Staff at a key training institution use the HRD platform to manage their programmes.
GIZ offers an additional institutional development service package to complement the HRD platform and foster smooth implementation. This package includes staff trainings and advisory services in the areas of quality control, workflow design and capacity building management.

Environmental protection and technological and industrial development have to go hand-in-hand for long term sustainable development.
There is a need to train organizations, technocrats and planners in essential aspects of environmental development such that these can be mainstreamed into every aspect of human activity.

The Human Resource Development Programme (HRDP) is a cross cutting thrust area under ASEM in the environment sector catering to sustainable urban and industrial development. The major objectives of the programme are to:

  • optimize resources and increase synergies;
  • facilitate expansion and upgrading of existing networks;
  • mobilize resources and
  • improve outreach for assured quality, results and impacts.

Human Resource Development Program in Environment reaches much beyond attainment of technical skills and includes elements of:

  • building awareness,
  • strengthening knowledge and skills to do the job within a given project,
  • systematically organizing access to knowledge as a strategic development,
  • strengthening management practices,
  • promoting peoples’ problem-solving and action competence,
  • strengthening the technical capabilities of institutions and organisations,
  • strengthening cooperation and integration among agents and their institutions,
  • strengthening the regulative and integrative framework,
  • fostering social responsibility.
