Sitting on Chairs: Observations on Capacity Building in Developing Countries


This paper by Dr John Twigg, our International Development Adviser, draws lessons from the first twelve independent evaluations of grants that we make to UK based International NGOs to build the capacity of Southern partners to respond to the needs of refugees and internally displaced people. (In the first years of this programme grants were made for work in Latin America and Africa and since then we have only funded in Africa). The report concludes with recommendations to both funders and to INGOs.
