Capacity building as a comprehensive strategy


It is important to develop a coherent medium and long-term strategy for capacity building, as opposed to an ad-hoc training approach.

Organisations need to develop a coherent strategy to build capacities and manage the knowledge and experience gained about gender equality, and they need to do so within the perspective of a long-term goal. This means that we have to identify those individuals within organisations who can have the greatest impact.

Training one person in an organization will not be enough either; this person should at least be trained as a multiplier so that trainees can play a role in the further building of capacities in the organization.

A comprehensive strategy also looks further than just training when it comes to capacity building; internal and external networking can play an equally important role in maintaining and updating knowledge and experience of the practice of gender mainstreaming.
