Definition of Capacity Development:
UNDP defines capacity as the ability of individuals, institutions and societies to perform functions, solve problems, and set and achieve objectives in a sustainable manner. Capacity development (CD) is thereby the process through which the abilities to do so are obtained, strengthened, adapted and maintained over time. Capacity development is seen by UNDP as a primarily endogenous and domestically driven process. It is an inherently political and complex process that cannot be rushed, and outcomes cannot be expected to evolve in a controlled and linear fashion [1].
This is the common definition for Capacity Development, other definitions can be discussed in the article
