Assessing Country Capacity

To design and implement a demand-driven capacity building programme, it is essential to assess a country’s current capacities and to work with officials to identify the capacity needs and how best these can be achieved. A needs assessment includes a review of the institutional and legal structures, human resources, management, supervision and working environment as well as the operational aspects of debt strategy and public finance and foreign private capital.

To enhance ownership of the capacity building process, DFI has adopted self-assessment approaches for assessing country capacity needs in debt strategy and public finance and foreign private capital.
