This Note sets out how partnership between the public sector and nongovernmental organisations in Turkey has been strengthened through a tailored capacity-building initiative.
The experience in Turkey illustrates three important messages. First, potential partners learn more effectively about how to develop their partnership when doing so together, than if they are trying to learn on a separate, unilateral basis. Second, partnership principles can be applied in the design and delivery of training programmes, and in so doing can assist external interventions to promote thelocal ownership of training assets. Lastly, the experience has also shown what might be achieved in the short term through the delivery of a Partnership Development training course, and what might be improved in future courses.
