The human resources development investment of the five country projects on staff of national and local institutions will allow for replication of interventions and thus multiply the number of young people who will be reached after the BEAR project is completed. Capacity-building activities will target staff of governments, employers' organizations, employee organizations and enterprises. In addition, investment on Management Information Systems, monitoring and evaluation and strategic planning will enhance the capacity for evidence-based policies.

Together, UNESCO and partner countries have established the implementation strategies, the logical framework of the project and project management system. To enhance the understanding of work processes and to define the responsibility of the related organizations, UNESCO developed a matrix as an implementation tool (see illustration). The aims of the matrix are to identify the leading and related organizations and assign roles for each of them. It can be filled in with detailed actions and a time schedule regarding every result and activity.  

The process of implementation, monitoring and evaluation of the BEAR project will also develop a mechanism for examining developments of TVET systems in participating countries, engaging policy dialogue on the issues and challenges facing education, training and employment in the SADC region. This will be further fostered, at regional level, through the partnership that has been established between SADC and UNESCO.

Finally, demonstrating the effectiveness of the project approaches in each country, will constitute an incentive for other donors to get involved in the TVET sector, forge partnerships and pursue the application of similar approaches after project completion.
