Main Description

Capacity building has been a topic of intense focus in many "core" or industrialized counties. This book explores the theoretical underpinnings of capacity building to sustain the natural resources, cultural resources, and human resources of communities. It reviews the extensive literature on capacity building strategies and policies and examines the implication of sustainable development and sustainability of communities around the world. The approach is theoretical and applied. It offers methods of operationalizing sustainable development and sustainability theories and explores capacity building methods at different levels of governments. Successful practices in non-governmental and governmental agency roles are examined.
