Host Institution: Berbera Municipality Authority, Somaliland
Khalifa Ibrahim, International Liaison Officer and Personal Assistant of Mayor
The CD4D2 project is important for us because of the knowledge transfer aimed at increasing the capacity of our staff. Through the project we can enhance the overall performance of our institution. CD4D2 boosts the performance of the Municipality workforce team and service delivery.
Our staff require training on how to improve their work. In my view, training is a good way to reach our objectives, mainly in fields such as Finance, Office Management, Urban Development and Procurement.
“ Knowledge transfer will guide us to be more effective and efficient „
The diaspora expert was very focused on training our staff to aim for a productive output and to reach excellence. Knowledge transfer by diaspora is very effective because there are no language barriers or cultural constraints. It will guide us to be more effective and efficient.”
The city of Berbera is located in a strategic position on the Gulf of Aden. Berbera Municipal Authority administers the country’s economic and trade hub. CD4D2’s diaspora experts support municipality staff to boost its socio-economic and infrastructural development.
