2021 Online Capacity Building Activities

As part of its mandate to champion PPPs in the Philippines, the PPP Center strategically implements its capacity building program by enabling and empowering various implementing agencies and other stakeholders to undertake viable PPP projects through targeted and customized trainings.

As mass gatherings are temporarily prohibited and physical distancing must be observed due to the COVID 19 pandemic, the Capacity Building Division (CBD) has responded to this need by switching to online capacity building activities (OCBAs) such as webinars, online trainings, and remote knowledge sharing sessions, in lieu of the usual face-to-face trainings.

The OCBAs are free of charge but participants are required to accomplish the registration forms.
