Training for better cities
Training for better cities is a UN-Habitat practice note exploring the role of training in capacity development. While training continues to be a frequent activity it has over the last years become evident that these investments often are not very effective in increasing the capacities of the individuals, organizations, networks, and institutions who are recipients of training.
This practice note will guide UN-Habitat, and other agencies that engage in training, to better and more effective training practices. It is taking cutting edge theory in training for capacity development and making it practical; providing best practices, tools and resources to support implementation. Moreover, this practice note is recognizing the limitations of training and presenting other options for development of capacities related to sustainable urban development.
