Volume 5: Feed the Future Measuring Local Capacity Development Guidance


This document (pdf, 407kb) highlights Feed the Future’s low capacity development considerations. Local Capacity Development (LCD) is a cross-cutting issue, in that it should be a part of USAID’s efforts across the board, not just in certain sectors or in a handful of projects. Feed the Future is proposing to achieve USAID FORWARD’s goals of local capacity building by working directly with host government ministries, institutions and agencies, private firms, and civil society organizations engaged in agriculture and food security-related manufacturing and services to improve their viability and to ensure there is “leave behind” sustainable, local entities to continue to deliver critical services to the agriculture, nutrition/health and rural sectors.
