Providing a forum for a joint South-North consensus to advance the capacity development agenda – to Busan and beyond
Because of its nature and mandate, the DAC has been focusing on providing a forum to DAC member countries, key multilateral partners and partner countries to share experience, promote joint learning, and seek common action strategies for capacity development. To implement its capacity development initiative, The DAC has working closely with two partners:
- The Southern-led CD Alliance: a Southern-led forum that represents partner country political advocacy on capacity development
- The Learning Network on Capacity Development (LenCD): an informal network of analysts and practitioners aimed at creating a global community of practice, with a focus on empirical learning
- The UNDP Capacity Development Group, which has been established to more systematically address support from the United Nations Development Programme (UNDP) to national and local capacity development
- The World Bank Institute, which aims to foster better results from capacity development initiatives by the World Bank and its partners.
Together, we have also established linkages with several other partners within and outside of the donor community, including - among others:
