Definitions and Practices
Twinning is perceived and practiced by aid organizations in a variety of ways. The World Bank, for example, defines twinning as a “process that pairs an organizational entity in a developing country with a similar but more mature entity in another country,” and recognizes the method as one of its four primary technical assistance delivery modes, along with long-term advisors, short-term advisors, and training.
The Bank uses twinning to transfer relevant operational knowledge between two organizations similar in function and structure. The European Community (EC) has employed numerous twinning projects since 1998 to facilitate the accession process for countries that wish to join the European Union (EU). Twinning takes the form of the secondment of EU experts for over a year, with a combination of other arrangements such as short-term missions, training, and specific technical services (computer and translation).
Main Features and Issues of Twinning
Distinctive features of twinning arrangements are that they:
(a) are an institution-to institution relationship, based on partnership between two organizations;
(b) achieve sustainable organizational capacity building;
(c) are based on long-term cooperation that continues after project completion;
(d) are highly flexible and can change according to need;
(e) use various modes of activity to ensure sustainability; and
(f) carry a notion of learning.
Key issues to consider when twinning is employed are:
(a) the selection of appropriate partners; and
(b) the design of the arrangement and relationship.
Twinning is more likely to be successful when the following elements exist:
(a) commitment of the parties;
(b) a high level of competence and flexibility on behalf of the supplier;
(c) feasibility of designated tasks;
(d) periodic follow-ups after project completion; and
(e) positive work relationships.
