Capacity building requirements for global environmental protection (English)

Capacity building has played a major role in the three-year pilot phase of the Global Environment Facility (GEF). The aim of this paper is twofold. First, it develops a preliminary generic categorization of the type of capacity building interventions that could help countries address global environmental concerns. This typology is based on a review of the two global conventions for which GEF is the interim financial mechanism - and on the the "Analytical Frameworks for Global Warming, Biodiversity, and International Waters". Second, building on this framework, the paper introduces the notion of a capacity building requirements table as a general tool for the disaggregation and analysis of the principal components in GEF capacity building interventions. The report provides some background clarification of the notion of capacity building; describes the parameters of capacity building for addressing global environmental concerns; develops a preliminary typology of capacity building under the GEF; presents the idea of a capacity building requirements table; and summarizes the main elements of this paper and offers some conclusions.
