Organization Development


Investments in capacity building positively impact on local ownership, efficiency, and sustainability but also make the local partners more competitive in raising and managing funds from the donor community.

In our international development practice, we define organizational development as the process of building the functional capacity of individual Community Based Organizations (CBOs), Civil Society Organizations, government agencies or private sector entities. In this context, functional capacity refers to the systems and processes that an organization needs to work efficiently to maximize impact.

We believe that sustainable development will only be achieved if it is locally demanded and driven by high performing government agencies, Civil Society Organizations (CSOs) and private sector entities. Our organization development engagements seek to help these groups build their capacities so that they are generally self-sustaining and serve their targeted beneficiaries more effectively.

From our experience, investments in organizational and technical capacity building positively impact on local ownership, efficiency, and sustainability but also make the local partners more competitive in raising and managing funds from the donor community.
