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.”

Over the years we developed a Capacity Development Framework that focuses on what we believe are the key elements toward achieving maximum levels of capacity throughout the firm.
