CAPACITY BUILDING

Several reports and studies have recommended the capacity building of both municipal functionaries and municipal institutions. Accordingly, the realigned Capacity Building Plan consists of two strategic interventions – Individual Capacity Building and Institutional Capacity Building. The purpose of individual training is to enhance the functional knowledge, improve the job-related skills and change the attitude of municipal functionaries. The one-year training will be imparted to municipal functionaries in training institutes (classroom) followed by its application at their workplace. Additionally, they will be mentored and provided coaching services at their workplace during the one-year training period. The aim of Institutional Capacity Building is to improve institutional outcomes, as set out in the AMRUT Reform Agenda.

Plan of Action (PoA)

Individual Capacity Building: 

Individual capacity building programme is designed to enhance the functional knowledge, improve the job-related skills and change the attitude of municipal functionaries. The one-year training will be imparted in training institutes (Institutions empanelled by MoUD), followed by its application at their workplace. Additionally, they will be mentored and provided coaching services at their workplace during the one year period. Based on the Training Needs Analysis (TNA), the focus will be on the following four departments in ULBs and Parastatal Agencies involved in the implementation of the Urban Missions in the cities

  • Finance & Revenue: Financial Planning and Management, Revenue Mobilization
  • Engineering and Public Health: Water and Sanitation, Drainage and Solid Waste Management
  • Town Planning: Urban Planning including pro-poor planning approaches
  • Administration: e-Governance, Computer and Soft skills
  • The technical functionaries will be provided training through 3 separate capsules spread over a period of one year. Each capsule will consist of 3 days training followed by 3-4 months during which the training will be applied in their work by the trained municipal functionaries. The year long training will also contain one exposure visit to best practice sites in India.
  • The training entities will also conduct state/regional/ national level workshops/seminars/consultations periodically.
