This book is for anyone interested in capacity building with NGOs and other civil society organisations. It provides an overview of trends and current thinking about NGO capacity building, the challenges and constraints. It also addresses the difficult issue of why, despite all our knowledge and experience, capacity building interventions commonly fail to meet expectations.

Capacity Building for NGOs analyses some of the cultural and contextual constraints that undermine our ability to implement appropriate and effective capacity building interventions. It concludes that not only is effective capacity building possible but it can also have a real and tangible impact. This book is about what works in practice and how best to ensure our investment in capacity building is timely, appropriate and successful.
