Central to all international development work is developing local capacity to enable the country to sustainably achieve economic and social development. At Alexander Brookes, we share this deep commitment to working close with local partners of developing nations to achieve the Millennium Development Goals.
Active involvement and empowerment of stakeholders is at the core of all that we do. We understand that success and sustainable progress is most effectively achieved by working in a participatory way with our clients and their stakeholders.
We help our clients to build the capacity for long-term, incremental and on-going change within government, civil society and the private sector. This is fundamental in ensuring that development projects has an impact not just during the implementation phase, but has continued progress after the external consultants have left.
We recognise, through our experience on many projects in Africa, that capacity goes far beyond skills and procedures; that incentives, governance, an acceptance of change are all key elements of development. Thus, our approach to increasing capacity within an organisation involves not just imparting knowledge and skills to their management and personnel but also to improve the organisation’s work culture and their approach to delivering value and service to their internal and external stakeholders.
