All GRÓ training programmes operated in 2021 despite of pandemic

GRÓ – International Centre for Capacity Development, Sustainability and Societal Change, that operates under the auspices of UNESCO, managed to continue its operations during last year, in spite of the various challenges posed by the COVID-19 pandemic. All four training programmes run by GRÓ were again able to receive students for the six-month training courses, a total of 90 fellows. In 2020 the operations were greatly disrupted and three of the programmes had to suspend the arrival of fellows for one year. Furthermore, short courses in partner countries could again be conducted last year.

GRÓ skólarnir störfuðu með nokkuð eðlilegum hætti þrátt fyrir heimsfaraldur

Öllum skólunum fjórum sem starfa á vegum GRÓ Þekkingarmiðstöð þróunarsamvinnu tókst að halda starfi sínu áfram á síðasta ári með nokkuð eðlilegum hætti og taka á móti nemendum í sex mánaða þjálfunarnámið, þrátt fyrir ýmsar áskoranir tengdar COVID-19 heimsfaraldrinum. Mikil röskun varð á starfinu árið 2020 og þurftu þrír skólanna þá að fresta komu nemenda um eitt ár. Þeir komust hingað loks í fyrra en þá sóttu 90 sérfræðingar frá þróunarlöndunum þjálfun við skólana fjóra hér á landi. Að auki var aftur hægt að standa fyrir námskeiðum á vettvangi.
