What can be done to foster more inclusive ownership, a critical factor in strengthening development effectiveness? A new study report demonstrates how capacity development efforts, when strategic and collaborative, can contribute to strengthening inclusive ownership dimensions.
The study involved a literature review and an analysis of nine selected case studies using WBI’s results framework to assess each change process. By deconstructing the cases in this manner, the report showed how different combinations of capacity development activities and intermediate results empowered agents of change to strengthen inclusive ownership.
The report’s findings provide several operational lessons for development practitioners to consider, in the areas of strengthening multi-stakeholder collaboration, investing in assessment and planning, emphasizing local leadership and tracking outcomes for effective change management.
