Community Capacity Building – invitation to discussion

At their recent meeting CLDMS members discussed a summary of the issues and priorities for community capacity building that had been identified by a Subgroup – read the document here. We would like to invite all members and other interested parties to add their comments on these issues and how they can be addressed.

Briefly the document argues that community capacity building will be an increasingly important theme of public policy. But how do we support it, and what needs to improve? There is a general lack of clarity about who does capacity building and its definition and extent. Needs are identified for:

Networking: Broaden understanding of who the capacity builders are and encourage debate among practitioners

Linking to national and local policy: Encourage a national debate on the outcomes from community capacity building

Making the Case and  providing evidence.
