This report presents the findings, conclusions and recommendations from an evaluation of Sida’s International Training Programme (ITP) approach to capacity development. Sida commissioned the evaluation in order to inform the future work of the Sida Capcity Development Unit (CAPDEV) with ITP as a capacity building instrument and provide recommendations for adaptations for future use. The evaluation finds that the ITP has been an effective tool to support capacity development of individuals but less effective at capacity development of organisations. Recommendations focus on how Sida should strengthen the link to other development and capacity development programmes and approaches in order to increase the effect of the ITP instrument at the organisational and national level and over time.
