EUNIDA workshop on Institutional Partnerships

EUNIDA and its member agencies FEI and GIZ organised an expert workshop on “The role of Institutional Partnerships in supporting Health and Education sector reform in Developing Countries” on the 6th of December at the premises of the French permanent representation to the EU.

The event aimed at providing a forum for discussion and exchange on future strategic actions in Health and Education sector reform, building on recent experience of two pilot Institutional Partnership Programmes implemented by EUNIDA in Kazakhstan. The main objective of these programmes was to explore the viability of extending the use of peer based technical assistance tools (institutional partnerships) to countries outside the Neighbourhood and Pre-Accession areas.

For the occasion team leaders and sector experts involved in both Kazakhstan projects were invited to share their views on the project and to present their hands-on recommendations regarding the methodology used. Throughout the subsequent in-depth debate with the relevant EU officials and sector representatives the following general conclusions regarding the future of institutional partnerships in sector reform in developing countries were formulated:

  • Create a common framework (vocabulary, expectations, cultural)
  • Multi-Levelled approach 
  • Mutual Learning process
  • Flexible project set-up
