Capacity Development: Practice Note (UNDP, 2008)

Executive Summary

This practice note introduces UNDP staff and other development practitioners to the UNDP approach to supporting capacity development. This approach is rigorous yet flexible, and can be adapted to suit different contexts and needs. It builds on a rich body of papers, case studies, methods and tools that UNDP has developed over the years. It is also underpinned by an analysis of what works and what doesn’t for capacity development, based on examples and evidence from UNDP and a large number of national and international development partners.
