Implementation – Capacity Development

21.2 What is capacity?


Capacity is the ability of individuals, organisations and societies to perform functions, solve problems and set and achieve goals. Capacity development entails the sustainable creation, utilisation and retention of that capacity, in order to reduce poverty, enhance self-reliance and improve people's lives.

Capacity development builds on and harnesses rather than replaces indigenous capacity. It is about promoting learning, boosting empowerment, developing social capital, creating enabling environments, integrating cultures and orientating personal and societal behaviour [UNDP, 2003].
