Capacity Development Effectiveness Ladder Framework

The last part of the 3 paper series on capacity development effectiveness is based on a critique of the prevailing global discourse and practice of capacity development thinking.

All the 3 papers can be downloaded from the SCBP learning portal :  niua.org/scbp/?q=learning-material  

We have tried to show, based on the experience of running a 5 year long urban sanitation capacity development program in India, what it means to run an effective capacity development intervention.

The CDEL Framework is a think piece for understanding effectiveness of capacity development and can be applied to not only sanitation but any developmental intervention or any sector. The framework attempts to place learning as the core of capacity development, to reclaim its legitimacy and that of capacity development work as such.

We hope this paper will contribute to deepening of the understanding of capacity development discourse at the global level. 

Comments, critique and disagreements, suggestions, appreciation....................................welcome.

Re: Capacity Development Effectiveness Ladder Framework

Capacity development is a low priority even among development community. Not just the funders and donors. 

If you come across any other paper on capacity development effectiveness - kindly share with us.
