Capacity is the ability of people, organizations and society as a whole to manage their affairs successfully. Capacity development is the process whereby people, organizations and society as a whole unleash, strengthen, create, adapt and maintain capacity over time
After 60 years of evolving development theory and programmatic interventions, it is time for a more holistic
and pragmatic approach to country systems strengthening. For decades, the central question of systems
strengthening in international development has seldom been explicitly defined or operationalized, and is more
subject to generic rhetorical assertions than to rigorous analysis based on a theory of change

There are specific challenges to address when monitoring and evaluating capacity building interventions. Planning and preparation are important, as is a recognition that any monitoring and evaluation (M&E) processes need to support rather than inhibit capacity building. Many different tools and methodologies are available, but these will often need to be adapted to the local context. Evaluating progress across a portfolio of organisations is difficult and involves trade-offs between consistency and local ownership.
