Welcome to Capacity.org: a gateway for capacity development

This is the online archive of Capacity.org, a resource portal for the practice of capacity development and the home of Capacity.org journal, which was published between 1999 and 2013. While the website is not currently being actively updated, it provides access to a broad range of related topic-based online resources that practitioners can draw on for their own work. We continue to track capacity development news and resources through several social media networks, including:

  • Our curated topics on the Scoop.it platform
  • Capacity Alliance Feeds, a weekly news update highlighting the work of international development organizations and knowledge networks involved in capacity development policy and practice

You can also follow us on Twitter and Facebook

Two decades of capacity development: A retrospective


capacity wordcloudAfter 15 years and 47 issues of  Capacity.org journal published, this online portal for capacity development practitioners will cease to exist in its current form at the end of 2014. In a sense this mirrors the transition towards a post-2015 development landscape in which boundaries between developed and developing, rich and poor, north and south have become increasingly blurred.
