Recent Trends and Issues in use of Personnel and Partnering for Development

This evaluation study synthesizes trends and issues in use of technical assistance personnel (TAP) for development assistance. The overall finding is that TAP – in various forms – remains a significant instrument in the toolbox of Danish development assistance. Overall, the use of TAP in its conventional role as capacity development of partners seems to have declined, but adoption of “doing development differently” may place new requirements on the TAP resources in Danish development assistance.
