This collection of guidance notes explains and demonstrates how to assess capacity development efforts by reviewing and documenting the results of ongoing or completed capacity development activities, projects, programs or broader strategies.
The notes can help practitioners and evaluators to highlight lessons learned and identify which approaches were successful and unsuccessful within specific contexts. This information provides an orientation for designing more effective results frameworks and monitoring arrangements during the project or strategy design stage.
Key concepts in this approach apply to a wide range of development initiatives. The methods have been tested on capacity development projects within the World Bank's lending portfolio and capacity building programs, on the Korea Development Institute Knowledge Sharing Program, and on a knowledge exchange program sponsored by the World Bank's South South Experience Exchange Facility.
