Our Capacity


We define capacity as follows:


“The availability of resources and the efficiency and effectiveness with which to deploy those resources to identify and pursue goals on a sustainable basis.”


This definition relies on three subsidiary definitions:


Availability of resources: “Human, Financial and Technical – is necessary but not exclusive condition for achieving development goals.”


Effectiveness and efficiency: “with which resources are acquired and used depend on specific configuration of socio - political, policy – related and organisational factors that conditions the behaviour of political and economic role players.”


Social and Economic Development: “is sustainable when results and performance are locally owned and can be replicated and improved by local role players.”
