Cap-Net is an international network for capacity building in sustainable water management.
It is made up of a partnership of autonomous international, regional and national institutions and networks committed to capacity building in the water sector.
Networks have proven to be effective at promoting the understanding of integrated water resources management and play a key role in supporting the development of IWRM and the achievement of the MDG's.
For more information about Cap-Net view our newsletter and the power point presentation. A brochure is also available from Cap-Net.
The 2002 Strategy Paper sets the framework for Cap-Net's work in addressing capacity building needs and strengthening of networks for capacity building in the regions and was supplemented by an updated strategy paper for phase 2.
An extensive peer review of five regional and three country networks by network managers from Latin America, the Caribbean, Africa and Asia during the second half of 2008 provided insights in the state of development of the networks, the development of products and programmes, and the delivery of capacity building by these networks. The reviews culminated in a consolidated internal review report.
A mid term evaluation of the second phase of Cap-Net has been carried out with very positive results for the continuation of the programme. The executive summary is posted here and the full report can be made available if required.
A draft Final Report has been submitted to the EU for the component funded under the EU Water Facility and other partners. The completion report for phase II 2006-2010 is under preparation while Phase III has now started with support from Sida.
