Description: 

Undertaking Capacity Needs Assessment (CNA) is critical for organizing appropriate capacity development interventions. AESA organised four workshops on CNA of EAS in India, Sri Lanka, Bangladesh and Nepal with the following objectives. 
1. Identify capacity gaps among EAS providers 
2. Finalise a methodology for undertaking capacity needs assessment.

This policy brief summarizes the capacity needs identified within this context and presents methods to strengthen capacities beyond training individuals at different levels which has hitherto been the most frequently used method for capacity development.
