Capacity Building

One of the main visions of Edge is to help individuals and organizations, particularly, at the local level, to obtain, improve, and retain the skills, knowledge, tools, equipment, and other resources needed to do their tasks competently or to a greater capacity. Thus, capacity building and/or capacity development is a core conceptual approach to social, behavioral change and leads to infrastructure development. It simultaneously focuses on understanding the obstacles that inhibit people, governments, international organizations and non-governmental organizations from realizing their development goals and enhancing the abilities that will allow them to achieve measurable and sustainable results.
