Programmes

AMRUT Individual Capacity Building Programme

Course Description
The AMRUT individual capacity building programme happens in three stages – Orientation, Custom Capsule 1 and Custom Capsule 2.

The capacity building programme starts with an Orientation course on the Mission. In this course, participants are introduced to the mission, its aims and objectives, the focus sectors under the mission and key concepts such as service level benchmarks for each sector. The three-day course focusses on discussing the challenges faced by urban India in the context of the Mission, and understanding the mission guidelines and toolkit comprising components, funding, processes, reform management, monitoring and review process. The modules introduce participants to the urban challenges, potential projects and possibilities under the mission, and contextualise similar transformations through established practices from India and across the world.

The current status of each sector in the respective states under the mission is discussed in this context. State-specific policies if any are analysed for the respective states. The purpose of the capacity building exercise is also explained. Participants engage in understanding existing challenges of urban India especially with respect to the provision of basic services, infrastructure and civic amenities. The orientation course was developed based on the outline shared by the National Institute of Urban Affairs (NIUA).

The custom capsules are based on the training needs assessment that happens at the end of the orientation course. The first custom capsule is typically a sector-specific deep-dive for the focus sectors under the mission and includes site visits to some projects that could serve as examples to attain the service level benchmarks proposed under the mission. Processes such as the preparation of a Detailed Project Report, Procurement Process, Contracting and Project Monitoring typically form topics of the second custom capsule of the capacity building programme.

Pedagogical methods adopted include thematic lectures, a mix of international and domestic case studies, guest presentations/lectures, audio-visual material, participant discussion sessions, group exercises, role-playing and peer-evaluation.
