SESRIC endeavours to enhance cooperation with all related national, regional and international institutions aiming at assessing training needs and capacities of the OIC Member Countries in order to effectively plan and implement training programmes and workshops through matching needs and capacities of the related institutions of the OIC Member Countries.
The main objective of Capacity Building Programmes is to explore the most practical ways of sharing the existing capacities among all relevant institutions in the OIC Member Countries. In implementing these programmes, the Centre regularly sends questionnaires to the Member Countries on the relevant subjects of training. Subsequently, based on the assessment of the responses of the Member Countries to these questionnaires, the Center makes arrangements to organize short-term training courses and workshops together with the contribution of national and international experts in order to support the capacity building activities in the Member Countries. The enrolment of participants into well-established training programmes and workshops according to their own choice in the Member Countries is another significant dimension of the Capacity Building Programnmes. All in all, over 1000 participants from the OIC Member Countries have benefited and/or had a chance to present their expertise in diverse areas. One of the crucial and differentiating features of the Centre’s training activities is considerably the lower costs at which these programmes have been implemented.
