Draft Capacity Development Guidelines Prepared by the CGIAR Capacity Development Community of Practice ahead of the 2nd round of CRPs

working paper
Consultative Group for International Agricultural Research (CGIAR)

Capacity development is regarded by CGIAR as an effective vehicle for sustainable development, when embedded within broader CGIAR Research Programs (CRP). This document offers guidelines on how CGIAR and boundary partners (or those partners who take up and adapt research results for the next level of users) can successfully develop and implement strategies which support this process of integration. These guidelines indicate the key advantages that an integrated approach to capacity development can bring to CRPs, centers and partners, and examines the requirement for both an appropriate capacity needs assessment before any strategies can be outlined, as well as comprehensive research, monitoring and evaluation of capacity development throughout the process.
