Capacity Development

Toolkit Page

Capacity Development (also referred to as ‘capacity building’) can be defined as the process where individuals, organisations and societies obtain and strengthen the capabilities to set and achieve their own objectives over time. It is a continual process, important for the growth and development of individuals, organisations and societies.

Kenya’s transition to devolved government created new national and intergovernmental institutions and 47 county governments requiring some new capabilities. A National Capacity Building Framework (NCBF) was developed in 2013 to guide the reform of the public service and provide principles and guidance for capacity development. The NCBF was aligned to the 2010 Constitution of Kenya and supported the achievement of the Kenya National Development Vision 2030; the Framework is currently being revised and updated.
