Connecting globally, catalyzing change locally
1

The capacity for change Capacity is the ability of individuals, organizations, state institutions, coalitions, and society itself to catalyze change to achieve their development objectives. Capacity development is therefore a country-led and country-owned process of change, requiring collective solutions from allsegments of society–public, private, and civil. The overarching objective is to create capable and accountable states, a competitive and responsible private sector, and an engaged and empowered citizenry. Collective solutions require new forms of collaboration, whether through public-private partnerships for the provision of infrastructure, health or education; citizen report cards to improve publicservice delivery; or mayors working together for climate change mitigation in urban centers. Developing the capacity for collective action means developing the capacity of entire leadership teams or ministries. It also means building multistakeholder coalitions, sometimes even among

conflicting social groups, to forge a consensus for change. Our vision Our vision is to be a catalyst for actionthat leads to change, and to serve as a global connector of knowledge, learning, and innovation. WBI connects globally to catalyze locally. Our approach Effective capacity development must be transformational. It must reach beyond training and technical assistance to inspire, empower, equip, and connect leaders and coalitions of state and nonstate actors. As a broker of global knowledge, WBI workswith donors, learning institutions, and centers of excellence that can shape, customize, and deliver content locally. We link global sources of knowledge through our platforms for South-South exchange and innovation. We connect, through World Bank operations, to the best sources of knowledge

and finance and to partners who provide funds andexpertise. Successful capacity development activities should lead to measurable changes in knowledge, practices, products, and services that improve the institutional environment in which development progress can be achieved. WBI supports capacity development strategies and programs that are locally-owned. Extensive partnerships with governments, civil society organizations, professionalnetworks, and private sector associations, coupled with the use of technologies such as e-learning and the Global Development Learning Network (GDLN), also enable us to adopt a wholesale approach and take our programs to scale.

South-South Country Visits. For example, decision-makers in various disciplines from 18 East and Southern African countries visited China to review that country’s development experience and to identify relevant practices that might be applied to their own development challenges. This program focuses on sectors that are most relevant to Africa, such as agriculture and trade. • The South-SouthExperience Exchange Trust Fund (SEETF) has supported a broad range of activities in different regions.
