Evaluation of Capacity Development in Danish Development Assistance
Support for capacity development is a cornerstone in Danish development cooperation.
This evaluation assesses Denmark’s support to capacity development as an integral part of sector support to priority countries. The focus of the evaluation is on support to enhancing the capacity of public sector organisations’ performance as regards relevance, coverage and quality of services and regulations.
The evaluation concludes that Denmark has facilitated capacity development processes that have contributed to increased organisational performance in most of the supported interventions.
The evaluation finds that good and comprehensive guidelines for support to capacity development exists and suggest that if they had been applied more effectively during planning and implementation better results would have been forthcoming. In particular, the evaluation points to the lack of a systematic and comprehensive approach to planning and reporting on capacity development.
The evaluation has been carried out by Nordic Consulting Group, Denmark.
