Capacity Development for Impact: Where is the Evidence?
Capacity development is increasingly seen as the sine qua non of successful development. Yet, despite the growing commitment to showing results, documented examples of its impact are hard find. The author went in search of available evidence and reviewed 29 case studies of capacity development from three development organisations. Her conclusion: development organisations and donors need to move away from their narrow focus on accountability to a broader focus on mutual learning. They should also stop looking for the perfect measurement policy and start measuring instead.
