Towards Effective Capacity Building
Leveraging Platforms in Capacity Building Sessions
Capacity development is the process through which individuals, organizations and societies obtain, strengthen and maintain the capabilities to set and achieve their own development objectives over time – United Nations Development Programme.
Enabling Participant Voice
Any capacity building session often begins with a strong reflective journey, one that enables participants to pay attention to the others present and understand each other’s perspectives. Engagement is enhanced when a session begins on a note of reflection and ends with participants providing their feedback on the session. This allows participants to feel heard and acknowledged as they embark on their learning journey. It sets the tone of autonomy for the adult learners.
