What is LenCD?
The Learning Network on Capacity Development (LenCD) is an informal network of analysts and practitioners aimed at creating a global community of practice around capacity development. Its objectives are to
facilitate the sharing of lessons and distill quality criteria for good practice
promote research, share experiences, monitor outcomes and carry out other empirical work
foster country-level, regional and international dialogue and collaboration
promote the mainstreaming of capacity development issues into agency operations
act as a key partner to advance the OECD DAC’s capacity development agenda.

LenCD Resource Corners
LenCD has developed a set of seven web-based resource corners around the capacity development priority themes of the Accra Agenda for Action. For each theme, documents and resources have been arranged around six sections:
1. Narrative orientation text
2. Top ten web-based publications/editors choice
3. Good practice/case materials
4. Useful web-sites and partners
5. Opinion pieces/viewpoints
6. Additional knowledge resources
An initial compilation of resource corners can now be accessed here and represents work in progress. Should you have any comments, ideas for documents to be added to any of the resource corners, or suggestions on how to improve these, please send an email to contact@lenCD.org.
Joint learning events at country level
Train4Dev works actively with LenCD in designing and implementing joined learning events at country level.
These learning events aim at supporting local or regional stakeholders moving their capacity development agenda forward in a specific sector or thematic context.
Reports on these events are available directly from the Train4Dev website.
