Strengthened capacity of ILGA Asia Executive Board and Staff on governance, project management, financial management, monitoring and evaluation, and resource mobilization:
- Build organizational capacity for board members: ILGA Asia board members are experts in SOGIESC issues, but they may not yet be familiar with their role in the Executive Board, especially for those newly elected. There has been no written documents regarding transition and limited handover procedures in between the boards. Opportunities to exchange knowledge with previous board or other regional boards will be provided either in person or through online technology. Written manual will be produced to facilitate board transition.
- Establish and maintain the office in Bangkok to enable long term recruitment of staff members and simple financial transactions: ILGA Asia will be able to sponsor staff members to work in Thailand and receive funding from donors. Our physical presence in Bangkok will make it easy for ILGA Asia to collaborate with most regional organizations working on SOGIESC and create more synergies.
- Develop technical capacity for ILGA Asia staff: To effectively manage the program and deliver the results, both to our members and various stakeholders, ILGA Asia will need a more capable system in place, and the staff will need to develop and strengthen capacity in results-based program management, operation, communication, monitoring and evaluation, and resource mobilization over the coming years.
