The GNWP capacity building component aims to support the effective implementation of WASH service provision and sustainable management of these services beyond the GNWP timeframe. While limited in financial terms, capacity building is a critical component of the GNWP. It is the glue between all elements. For GNWP to achieve its intended impact, stakeholders should have the capacity to implement, operate and maintain WASH infrastructure. The systems, resources, and staff capacity of key stakeholders determine the success of the GNWP. Set in a context in which these capacities tend to be low, it is crucial that GNWP has a coherent approach towards capacity strengthening.
