In August 2012, I-2DP had the honour of being invited by the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of Ethiopia to join hands with three other Foreign Service Training institutes from Indonesia, India, Turkey, and UNITAR to prepare curricula for the Foreign Service Training Institute of Ethiopia and the School of Diplomacy and International Relations in Addis Ababa. After five weeks of preparation in Accra which constituted the first phase, the Executive Director moved to Addis where she had intensive collaboration with the projects' Curriculum Committee for fourteen days .

This happy development is in line with I-2DP's cardinal objective of contributing towards capacity building in Africa in the field of diplomatic training. I-2DP continues to engage other African countries and beyond in similar collaborative endeavours.
