Global Lessons on Individual Capacity Building from the Talent Development Project

Project: Talent Development 4th April 2018

The Talent Development Project (TDP) implementers observed varying attitudes and opinions about the value of individual capacity building (ICB) amongst relevant stakeholders including donors, INGOs, NGOs and individuals during the project’s lifetime. Additionally, in the current literature, there appears to be a tendency to downgrade the value of individual capacity building in favour of organisational development practices.

In February 2018 RedR UK was commissioned by TDP to conduct a study on Global Lessons in Individual Humanitarian Capacity Building from the Talent Development Project. The purpose of this research is to give an unbiased analysis of the value of individual capacity building (particularly of national humanitarian staff), in order that START Network agencies and the wider sector can be better informed about the choices they make in this regard. This analysis will contribute to the evidence base relating to ICB in the humanitarian sector, specifically in relation to the value of building the capacity of individuals.
