AMS CoE Regional Project: Management of capacity building activities

Project No 9RLA11009
Title AMS CoE Regional Project: Management of capacity building activities
Description Within the Centres of Excellence initiative, the Centre of Excellence for the Americas Region (AMS CoE) was one of the first to be established. Phase I of the AMS CoE (2001-2007) put in place a regional mechanism for knowledge sharing and a network of excellence with regard to capacity building. Phase II of the AMS CoE (2007-2010) further consolidated a diversified portfolio and a critical mass of training programs and launched a financial mechanism for its self-sustainability. By the end of 2010, the AMS CoE has proven to be a self-sustaining initiative in terms of relevance to the ICT sector in the region and from a financial point of view.
In order to continue supporting the delivery of high-level on-line/face-to-face training activities, thus meeting the needs and expectations expressed by the ITU’s Membership in the Region in line with WTDC-10 Resolution 73 and taking into account the financial self-sustaining mechanism already in place within the AMS CoE, the objective of the Project is to serve as an overall framework for the continuation of AMS COE 2011-2012 activities while moving the regional CoE initiatives towards an ongoing non-project based mechanism.
