EGNI’S 21ST CENTURY MANDATE: CAPACITY BUILDING IN EDUCATION
EduGlobeNet International Inc. Professionals work hard to make our company a small, yet significant player in Capacity Building in International Education around the World. EGNI’s unique approach to development continues to be a high point in the support we bring to colleagues in the Developing World. More specifically, issues of Gender Equity, Literacy, Equity of Access to Public Education, and enhanced student performance are predominant in our professional agenda for action. EGNI offers expertise and skills in direct support to UNDP’s Millennium Development Goals number two, three and eight:
(2) Achieve universal Primary Education
(3) Promote Gender Equality and Empower Women
(8) Develop a Global Partnership in Development
Most leaders in Emerging Economies have understood and accepted the fact that they will not successfully meet the many 21st century challenges without the support from and involvement of a literate, educated citizenry where men and women are equal partners in their country’s development.
At home, EGNI has also been privileged to earn the trust and respect of a number of Canadian First Nations communities throughout the country (Alberta, Northern Ontario, Newfoundland & Labrador) as we work with them to resolve the unique education challenges they face in remote and/or isolated communities. While conditions may indeed vary greatly from one community to the next, resolving issues in open and flexible partnership with selected stakeholders is our Modus Operandi of choice: EGNI has established itself as a leader in this field. EGNI continues to strive to design appropriate, relevant & challenging curriculum in line with tradition and culture; and support the implementation of new forms of Education Services Governance that better serve our First Nations youths and communities.
EGNI’S 21ST CENTURY MANDATE: CAPACITY BUILDING IN PUBLIC ADMINISTRATION
Public Administration Capacity Building Projects aim to enhance the performance of public sector procurement, financial management, and accountability systems which will contribute to a more effective, transparent, and accountable state. Governance and Public Administration are crosscutting critical facilitating factors in the process of achieving the Millennium Development Goals, poverty reduction, and sustainable development. EGNI implements Capacity Building Training by working with clients in seven key specific domains:
1. Redesigning and reconfiguration of governance systems and institutions
In its approach to public policy-making EGNI constantly strives to involve the local people and a wider spectrum of stakeholders (representatives of government, local governments, the private sector, and the civil society at the global, regional, national and local levels) rather than be a monopoly of the central government or public sector institutions.
2. Ethics, transparency and accountability in the public sector
EGNI Capacity Building training in Public Administration promotes ethics policies and programs to preserve organizational integrity, increase access to information to foster transparency and accountability, and enhance the work of oversight bodies.
3. Reforming institutions of the public service
With the creation of the Millennium Development Goals and the push for reducing poverty, reforming public sector institutions has recently focused on strengthening their capacities for spearheading the achievement of these Goals.
4. Strengthening the human resource capacity including leadership
The challenge of attracting, developing, utilizing and retaining capable human resources in the public sector is central to the effectiveness of governments all over the world. Many countries need to take up the challenge of building human resource capacities in general, and leadership in particular. Sustainability is at the core of EGNI’s approach to Capacity Building.
5. Public Service Values and Ethics
An effective public service is indispensable to the overall struggle for strengthening the rule of law and sustainable development, principally because the public service is central to the planning, implementation, monitoring, and evaluation of policies and programs that are directly related to the reduction of poverty. EGNI engages in systematic diagnosis and analysis of forces and factors that often lead to the erosion of the image of the public service and offers remedies that would re-establish the values, status, and prestige in serving the public.
6. Strengthening decentralized governance for reducing poverty
Many countries have embraced decentralized governance as a structural and practical arrangement for empowering local communities to fight poverty at a close range. Strengthening decentralized governance involves building institutional and human capacities in central government institutions, local government institutions, and civil society organizations for supporting participatory planning, implementation, monitoring and evaluation of development as well as accountability at the grass-roots level.
7. Building capacities of governance and public administration for managing conflict
Developing countries are now engaging in activities for strengthening the capacities of their governance and public administration to make policies that are conflict-sensitive as part and parcel of conflict management. EGNI is a solid partner in such ventures.
