About the Book :

Capacity development is hot and high on the agenda of development agencies. In efforts to address social, economic and environmental issues, the importance of improved competencies, collective capabilities and capacity have become ever more evident. This has led to the emergence of capacity development as a dominant and defining approach. This book has emerged from interaction with development practitioners, policy makers, social entrepreneurs and academics through trainings, learning trajectories, evaluations and action research. The core ambition behind its development is to provide an introduction, a primer, into the subject of capacity development. The book provides an excellent practice based introduction and guidance for policy makers, practitioners and students with regard to the subject of capacity development.
