Seven Somali diaspora experts,who are currently embedded in government institutions in Mogadishu, Hargeisa, Bosaso and Garowe,returned to Somalia from abroad to conduct short-term capacity building assignments to train Somali government officials as part of the QUESTS-MIDA project. In April 2013, they completed a “Training-of-Trainers” workshop conducted by IOM Somalia and UNDP Somalia.

The two-day workshop, held in Hargeisa from the 7th to the 9th of April 2013, assisted the group to learn how to transfer their knowledge and skills to staff in government institutions by developing a basic understanding of Training Needs Assessment (TNA) tools and techniques to be used in the field.
