Introduction to Topics
The resources on Capacity.org are organized around a broad range of topics that span the theory and practice of capacity development. For a quick overview, the 20+ topics are further grouped into two broad clusters, roughly corresponding to (i) the essential building blocks of capacity development theory and practice, and (ii) specific applications in day-to-day practice. This mix of theory and practice is designed to enhance accessibility of the resources for different needs or interests: whether one is a field-based development worker, researcher, policy adviser, information broker or business manager.
Navigating the content
In addition to exploring individual topics, it is possible to make a quick search of all resources available on this website using the specific keywords or search tags on the right.
With further links to online resources and discussions around each topic - as well as communities of practice where these exist - users will be able to immediately link up with knowledge networks in their area of interest for further exchange and collaboration.
We will continue to add new topics and incorporate emerging issues as they arise and welcome additional contributions and suggestions from our readers. If you would like to upload a publication, case study, upcoming event, or inform us about existing initiatives on any of these topics, please get in touch with us.
