Eight participants, six from the Somaliland Coast Guard, one from the Attorney General Office and another from the Ministry of Justice, took part in a one-day capacity building workshop focused on project management principles last week in Hargeisa.
The aim of the workshop was to familiarize Somaliland counterparts with EU projects and to share information on the activities of EUCAP Field Office Hargeisa through participative methods, examples and scenario work.
Captain Suhur Fathi Muktar, Head of Training from Somaliland Coast Guard, explains how she will use the skills and apply those to her day-to-day work:
“I was glad to attend the workshop as it will help me to prepare trainings, plan workshops and projects as I got tips on how to use project management tools in more efficient manner.”
The workshop enables Somaliland partners to understand EUCAP project management but also to improve their own project implementation cycle.
“I think it’s important to be familiar the EU project management policies and to understand how our EUCAP partners implement their projects. This enables us to do cooperation but it also builds our capacity to prepare, plan and evaluate our projects in Somaliland ministries.” Said Yasin, Director of Policy and Planning of Somaliland Ministry of Justice.
