Manual for Capacity Development

Karin Schulz, SIPU International in cooperation with Ingemar Gustafsson and Erik Illes, Sida
Methods Document / Strengthening the capacity of partners in development is a central task for Sida, as it is for most other development cooperation organisations today. The current issue is not whether more should be done in this area, the question is how it should be done. How can we, as external actors, contribute to something which basically concerns learning and which must grow from inside? What should the interaction between partners look like? Which role should and can Sida play? How do we cooperate with professional organisations in Sweden and how do we coordinate with other donors? This manual has been established in order to provide some of the answers to these questions.
