A Capacity Development Market? Stimulating the Provision of Local Capacity Development Support

Although the international development community invests billions of dollars to improve organizational capacity, real-life practice is poorly understood and undervalued as a distinct professional domain.This publication, written by practitioners for practitioners, is designed to fill these gaps. Practical illustrations draw on experiences from the civic, government and private sectors. A central theme presents capacity as more than something internal to organizations. The authors show how capacity also stems from connections between different types of actors and the levels in society in which they operate. The content is crafted for a broad audience: consultants, managers, front-line workers, trainers, facilitators, leaders, advisors, program staff, activists, and funding agencies.
