Practical Seminar Managing Implementation Partners in International Cooperation


Implementation Between Audit-Preparedness, Value for Money and Capacity Building · Audit-Preparedness · Capacity Building · Risk and Capacity Assessments

International Organisations receive funding from major donors which binds them to strict eligibility criteria, creating a need to assess partners and their risks but also ensuring an audit-proof implementation. Moreover, implementation partners (IP) must provide value for money reflected by performance indicators. Sustainable impact, resilience and building capacities are key for successful cooperation with your partners.
