Prepared by the Regional Community Forestry Training Center for Asia and the Pacific, or the Center for People and Forests (RECOFTC), this guide presents a staged approach to assessing capacity needs. The process suggested does not provide the “answer” – analysis, discussion, judgments, problem-solving and teamwork are required. What it does provide is a systematic, transparent and participatory way of considering capacity-strengthening needs, appropriate interventions and the resources to meet these needs.
