The INGORC Capacity Development Working Group

Capacity development is the focus of many development initiatives in Vietnam, which are largely focused on civil society. Some are led by NGOs, donors and volunteer organizations, others by civil society organizations and some by Government institutions. Although capacity building is a common element of many different organizations and across many sectors, there are few initiatives for sharing lessons learnt, resources and coordinating resources.

The CDWG aims to reduce vulnerability by helping local organizations to improve through a forum for exchange between different stakeholders, creating a dialogue and mutual learning on organizational capacity development by:

  • Coordinating and sharing initiatives and knowledge in organisational development in order to mutually learn, maximise impact and minimise overlap.
  • Creating an interface between NGOs and their counterparts, including the Government, donors and the private sector, for dialogue and advocacy on civil society capacity development.
  • Ensuring that NGOs, civil society organisations and self help groups in Vietnam have access to information, training, events and funding opportunities relating to capacity development and support.
