In the spirit of continued collaboration, the Swiss Agency for Development and Cooperation (SDC) Abu Dhabi and the Emirates Red Crescent (ERC) have co-organized Part 2 of the workshop dedicated to “Knowledge Exchange in Results-based Management in International Cooperation” from 7 to 8 May 2017.

This workshop was a continuation of Part 1 which was successfully concluded earlier this year in January. Both Parts were presented by SDC’s Regional Advisor for Development Cooperation and Humanitarian Aid, Niklaus Eggenberger.

The importance of such joint collaboration efforts in this field was emphasized and appreciated by the ERC leadership as well as the participating management-level ERC employees and volunteers, all of whom participated in both workshop parts. Based on the success and positive reception of these events, it was decided that ERC’s HR Department will take over from the Department for International Cooperation the co-organization with SDC of these workshops in the future, the intention being to mainstream similar workshops and events into the ERC’s annual agenda.
