Achieving results, enhancing ownership, and translating principles into action

How can country partners strengthen capacities and inclusive governance to pursue pro-poor, sustainable growth which adapts to and mitigates the effects of climate change?

Capacity development has increasingly come to the fore as a central concern for sustainable development. It is also a central concern for Aid effectiveness. Still, both country partners and development partners struggle to get it right in practice, and avoid the well-known risks of supply-driven solutions; weak impact in terms of results that matter; fragmentation; and too short time horizons for real change to happen.  As a follow up to the Cairo Consensus on Capacity Development adopted in March 2011, LenCD and concerned partners want to put the recommendations of that consensus through a “stress-test” on the ground and learn from country experiences.  This workshop was therefore planned in order to promote a common understanding of key aid effectiveness and capacity development issues in the sector especially sharing experiences, lessons learned and best practices.

Draft documents from the workshop are attached below:
