Technical Support: Development of Local Capacity Development Fund
Client: SNV Netherlands Development Organization
Budget: 4 Million
Timeline: 2 Years
For the first time in such a long time, I am completely satisfied with a Consultant’s report at the first review. All the issues from in the Terms of Reference have been comprehensively dealt with, and I have no further queries
The Dutch Development Organisation (SNV Uganda) sought to establish a Local Capacity Development Fund (LCDF) and as part of the preparatory phase contracted Interface to establish how the supply and demand for capacity development services at decentralised levels ( from local government to community levels) were generated. It was envisaged that this would help determine the strategic issues to be supported and addressed by a local LCDF initiative.
Interface explored local level capacity demand and supply issues in three geographical regions in Uganda. A strategic approach to the establishment of the local capacity development fund ( for the Ugandan context) was outlined and key areas for short to medium term intervention within the agriculture, education and water and sanitation sectors were identified.
