National Capacity Self-Assessment Resource Kit

United Nations Environment Programme ; United Nations Development Programme (2005)

The NCSA Resource Kit was developed to provide countries with a “tool box” of capacity development approaches, techniques and tools, based on international best practices and NCSA experience to date. The purpose of the kit is three-fold: i) To assist countries to focus on capacity needs to strengthen management of national and global environmental issues, in the context of sustainable development; ii) To introduce approaches and tools that can be used by NCSA teams to conduct an eff ective and effi cient capacity assessment and planning exercise, tailored to national needs and circumstances; and iii) To provide guidance on GEF requirements for NCSAs, including principles to be followed and outputs to be produced.
