About the product

Capacity development is increasingly becoming the central purpose of technical cooperation in the 1990s. This United Nations Development Programme (UNDP) Technical Advisory Paper presents the lessons from four decades of technical cooperation along with the fundamental changes that UNDP has instituted to capitalize on the potential contributions of capacity development. The publication stresses that national plans and priorities constitute the only viable frame of reference for the national programming of operational activities for development within the United Nations system.
