Integrating capacity development into project design and evaluation : approach and frameworks (English)

This paper provides a brief review of the current status of capacity development work within Global Environment Facility (GEF) and highlights some areas for improvement that will require follow-up work. The paper seeks to: 1) identify ways to integrate capacity development objectives at the project planning stage; and 2) develop a framework and indicators for evaluating the performance of capacity development activities. The paper includes: a) a presentation of the GEF situation and how it affects GEF abilities to design, monitor, and evaluate capacity development; b) a discussion of implications and recommendations, which highlights several operational issues limiting the ability of GEF to monitor and evaluate capacity development; and c) a series of technical annexes with tools and instruments to facilitate monitoring and evaluation of capacity development. The paper recommends that GEF: a) engage in more systematic dialogue on capacity frameworks; b) put in place some capacity development support services for staff, both in-house and externally; c) make efforts to increase staff skills and knowledge about the use and applications of any resulting framework for capacity analysis; d) plan specific change processes into a project; and e) do more thinking and work on implementing a more considered approach to iteration.
