Definition(s)
A fundamental goal of capacity building is to enhance the ability to evaluate and address the crucial questions related to policy choices and modes of implementation among development options, based on an understanding of environmental potentials and limits and of needs as perceived by the people of the country concerned. As a result, the need to strengthen national capacities is shared by all countries (Source: Capacity Building for Sustainable Development, UNEP, 2002 - chapter 37, Agenda 21)
Capacity Building comprises educational and training programmes and materials as well as training and education of scientific, technical and managerial personnel, including strengthening of national institutions (Source: based on UNFCCC Art. 6)
