When leaders of community-led initiatives have opportunities to continue building capacity and gaining skills in targeted development areas, they’re better able to strengthen the effectiveness and sustainability of development projects. International Training Centre, International Labour Organization (Delnet) provides technical assistance and networking opportunities to our community partners who receive IAF scholarships to take courses such as:
- Local Development With a Gender Perspective
- Local Development With a Health Perspective
- Sustainable Tourism
- Disaster Mitigation
At the IAF, we support community-led solutions to strengthen governance in Latin America and the Caribbean. ITC/ILO’s activities strengthen communities through education and training and build peer-to-peer learning and action networks.
