It also aimed to strengthen institutional capacities and individual competencies, allowing organisations to refine their political agenda and form stronger peer networks. With the goal of empowering these organisations to create positive political change, DRI provided these groups with resources, guidance, and networking opportunities. Through thematic training sessions on the national anti-corruption strategy, digital transformation strategy, decentralisation, and access to information, participants built positive relationships with peers from different backgrounds and affiliations.

And another kicks off

DRI has launched its capacity-support programme for the upcoming municipal elections in Tripoli, North Lebanon to facilitate peer-to-peer knowledge sharing and exchange of expertise among 21 municipal council members and potential candidates from Tripoli, Akkar and Koura.

The objective of the programme is to equip participants with the necessary knowledge and skills and to connect with like-minded individuals and build a strong network of support as they navigate the complex world of municipal politics and local development. Through this programme, participants will gain access to valuable resources and training materials that will help them develop the skills and knowledge necessary to make inclusive and informed decisions if elected.
