Capacity is the ability of people, organisations and society as a whole to manage their affairs successfully. Capacity Development is the process whereby people, organisations and society as a whole unleash, strengthen, create, adapt and maintain capacity over time.
As consultants, we play a supporting role, helping domestic leaders develop and implement their own strategies to improve the capacity of organisations or amend the institutional framework. Effective institutions and policies are essential for sustainable development. In training activities, we work with individual learners, who build on their capacity to change institutions and systems. Thus we call this service Human Capacity Development.
