The concept of institutional capacity building and review of road sector projects

Institutional capacity building (ICP) is one of the leading challenges in developing countries and countries with economies in transition. The report identifies that in order for ICB to be successful, it must focus on tangible and non-tangible resources. The report provides a history of the focus of ICB and highlights some of the general successes and failures, noting that the experiences of developing countries can be quite different to those with economies in transition. The report also presents five case studies from different developing countries to highlight how ICB is perceived and addressed, to what extent the cases relate to the ICB concept and the lessons learnt. Strategies for capacity building are described, including the provision of assistance (through financial or physical resources), improving organisational and technical capabilities, setting strategic goals and strengthening the interrelations between organisations, individuals and groups. The report also highlights the close relationship between ICB and good governance.
