Ethiopia, Productive Safety Net Program: Technical Assistance and Capacity Building: February 2010–December 2014
The Productive Safety Net Program (PSNP) is an initiative targeting some of the underlying causes of food insecurity in Ethiopia.
The Policy Options Project (POP) supports Chinese policy reforms by strengthening the capacity of Chinese Government officials to develop and implement policies. POP contributes Canadian technical expertise through sub-projects that respond to Chinese Government requests related to the current priorities of: ethnic minority rights, labour rights, and rule of law. The common element of all POP programming related to the above priorities will be a focus on marginalized groups such as migrant workers and ethnic minorities. To achieve tangible results for these marginalized groups, priority will be given to POP proposals that emphasize the implementation of reforms lead by sub-national agencies, including provinces, municipalities, and ethnic autonomous regions. The Chinese policy makers, through the sub-projects will be able to exchange ideas, models, experience, and expertise with Canadian policy makers, practitioners, and experts. POP started in 2005 and was expected to end December 31, 2010. POP was extended in March 2011 and will continue through to April 2015. POP builds on the successes and lessons learned from the Public Sector Reform Project (PSRP), which was also implemented by Agriteam. To learn more about POP and view opportunities available to Canadian experts please visit www.popinchina.com and go to the subproject opportunities page.
The Improving Basic Education Project (IBEP, PROMEB in Spanish) will strengthen basic education in Peru by developing the capacity of educational administrators and service providers in the region of Piura. The project will focus on four key components: (1) strengthen the institutional capacity and human resources of basic education; (2) develop and facilitate the implementation of educational programs; (3) coordinate project activities in rural environments; and (4) mainstream gender and participation into the project. It aims to improve access and quality of preschool and primary education for rural children, and to produce a model for basic education in Piura that can be reproduced in other parts of the country. The project will work with the Dirección Regional de Educación (DRE), the regional arm of the Ministry of Education (MED), and the Agentes de Desarrollo Educativo and Coordinaciones Educativas, intermediary organizations (OIs) that work in support of the DRE.
Agriteam Canada Consulting Ltd. is the lead firm in a consortium that also includes the University of Manitoba and ProAction: Partners for Community Health in implementing the Canada-Pakistan HIV/AIDS Surveillance Project (HASP), funded by the Canadian International Development Agency. The project seeks to enhance the capacity of the Government of Pakistan to implement an effective Second Generation Surveillance (SGS) System for HIV/AIDS. HASP is a capacity building project that involves working with the National AIDS Control Program (NACP), Provincial AIDS Control Programs (PACPs) and other stakeholders to develop a sustainable SGS system for HIV/AIDS. To date, HASP has succeeded in putting in place an effective SGS system that identifies population sub-groups at increased risk for HIV and other Sexually Transmitted Infections; provides timely warning of sudden changes in levels or distribution of HIV or of risk behaviours in those population sub-groups; and enables planners to understand the potential routes through which HIV can spread from high risk groups to the general population. Recently our consortium received an 18 month time extension on the project. The project will conclude in October 2011.
