Capacity Building

Knowledge Sharing Series

Enhancing the competencies of the Center’s technical staff is another important facet of the PPP capacity building program. The Knowledge Sharing Sessions (KSS) are industry expert-led dialogues that provide a less formal venue for knowledge exchange on PPP projects and their technical aspects, relevant to the needs of the Center’s staff. Several well-attended sessions have covered many complexities of the PPP mode of procurement. With this, more talks are planned, with the intent of providing more in-depth and relevant knowledge to government functionaries steeped in PPP project work.
