This section provides advice and guidance, based on previous experience in sport and development, on building capacity of organisations involved in sport and development. Suggestions and recommendations provided in this section are based on previous experience in sport and development initiatives.
To carry out sport and development projects, skills and expertise are needed to:
- teach sport;
- facilitate group work (coaching);
- develop and manage sports structures and organisations (organisational capacity building).
Building relationships with other organisations and decision-makers is shown to be crucial to developing these skills and gaining this experience. The ways in which stakeholders relate to and cooperate with each other or the ‘rules of the game’ may need to be changed.
This section brings together key resources in this area and provides further references, sources of information and tools for those who wish to know more on capacity building.
