This is in fact not the final report of a five year research programme on capacity, change and performance that was published last year, but a Policy Management Brief by Tony Land providing an overview of the final study report and in addition focussing on practical implications.
This research provides fresh perspectives on the topic of capacity and its development. It does so by highlighting endogenous perspectives: how capacity develops from within, rather than focusing on what outsiders do to induce it. The research also embraces ideas on capacity development drawn from literature outside the context of development cooperation.
