Human and Institutional Development

Capacity Enhancement

Investment in developing human resource is one of most essential factors leading towards sustainable development. As a result of skills and capabilities enhancements of the individuals; institutions and communities gain power to perform better, function effectively & efficiently, resolve their problems and set to achieve their objectives for poverty reduction. Situation is not encouraging in Pakistan as reflected in the Human Development Index (HDI) report published in 2009, as it stands among the 30th lowest countries in terms of availability of a developed and sound human resource in the country. Situation in Balochistan province is further worsened as compare to the rest of the country. As most parts of the province depends on agriculture and livestock for livelihoods while the decade-prolonged drought has badly damaged both the sectors resulting in very limited opportunities of the dependent communities to gain sufficient income and earnings from their livelihood sources. Additionally, traditional practices by farmers in agricultural farming and livestock rearing have resulted in low productivity and poor income to meet the needs of their families. To contribute effectively in Human Resource Development through developing human and Institutional capacities for effective long-term poverty alleviation in Balochistan, BRSP has evolved Balochistan Institute of Human Development (BIHD) to serve the role. BIHD has been actively engaged in providing assistance to a broad set of stakeholders including individuals, communities and public and private sector organizations in capacity building and institutional strengthening. In addition to enhancing capacities for effective and efficient resource and services mobilization, BIHD facilitates communities in developing sustainable frameworks to identify and implement development interventions. Simultaneously its HID unit strives to develop efficient mechanisms for delivery at organizational level by capacitating the staff to contribute in better service delivery. It is done through promoting internal learning culture and by organizing and facilitating inception planning, seminars, workshops, exposure visits, staff attachments and international exposure for staff. The unit�s objective of alleviating poverty through changing mindset involves engagements with broad set of stakeholders and other potential organization in the sector. BIHD has signed MoU with National Institute of Rural Management NRSP N-IRM, Government of Balochistan Rural Development Academy as part of its expanding the learning base. BRSP has enhanced the capacity of 18, 2130 community members, 1,004 staff and 78 internees till date through different community-based & staff training events till date.
