Out with the old, in with the new.
At Capacity Building International, LLC we welcome every New Year with the opportunity to review how far we have come and where we would like to go in the upcoming year. Understanding our successes and failures are critical to ensuring the we continue to learn and adapt as a team. With this in mind, we are excited for what 2018 will bring, and the plans we have in place.
While 2017 served as our initial year in CBI, we used that time to lay the foundation for a number of projects in 2018. We expect a number of initiatives to come to fruition in 2018 with regards to our Kosovo engagement and at the same time we see that while the international partnerships will thrive, the domestic programs in Kosovo may fall further behind. Unfortunately the political situations on the ground in Kosovo, while stable, are not necessarily progressive and we remain in contact with our local partners to support new legislative reforms where and when possible.
Internationally capacity building efforts are long term and require strategic patience, as well as a diversified approach to ensure that while progress is constrained in one area we continue to develop in others. We expect 2018 to be a great year on all fronts and we very much look forward to working with our local and international partners.
Happy New Year from Capacity Building International, LLC!
