About this book

Considers specific and practical ways in which NGOs can contribute to enabling people to build on the capacities they already possess. It reviews the types of social organisation with which NGOs might consider working, and the provision of training in a variety of relevant skills and activities.

Capacity Building makes highly interesting reading for all those involved in development cooperation. It challenges the reader and forces one to answer some pertinent questions. I recommend it. Development Cooperation
