Theme 4: Capacity building



GCP Phase I capacity building (2004–2008)

Capacity building is crucial for the long-term sustainability of GCP research, and is an indispensable prerequisite for enabling delivery. A revamped strategy for training was launched in 2012.

Theme 4 conducts activities in direct support of all GCP Themes and Research Initatives. It fulfils its role by building technical capacity for the efficient implementation of GCP research, thereby facilitating the flow of GCP products through the research–delivery continuum to intermediate and end-users.
