What is Capacity Development?

To us, it is all about unlocking human and organizational potential by:

  • Creating an enabling environment,
  • Giving people compelling reasons to act and
  • Supporting them with the knowledge, skills, tools and resources they need to succeed. 

Looked at from this viewpoint, Capacity Development includes:

Enabling Environment at the sector level
Organization Development
Effective Human Behavior and
Good Practices

This viewpoint underlies this IMPACT Guidebook and forms the basis for chapter organization.
