Institutional and Political Economy Context Scanning / Stakeholder Analysis Drivers of Change [in: FAO Learning Module 2. FAO Approaches to Capacity Development in Programming: Processes and Tools]

This module concerns integrating capacity development into programming and covers the assessment process, engagement with stakeholders and tracking capacity development. Tools are provided.

This module is the second in the series designed to improve Capacity Development (CD) approaches in projects and programmes of FAO. It includes examples and tools to support endogenous CD processes in the areas of FAO’s mandate. Practitioners also may draw on the other Learning Modules (see box 1) which cover tools from disciplines such as organization analysis and development, learning event planning, facilitation and instructional science.

Learning Module 2 is organized around five major themes: engaging with national/local actors; analysing the context and assessing capacity needs; measuring CD; and building sustainability. It also offers a toolkit including examples, methods and instruments.
